At this time, we open the space for guests here today to share a memory. This can be a story or memory that makes you smile or is special to you.If we were all together today this would be like raising your hand and passing the microphone around the room. There are two ways to raise your hand. To use the Zoom feature, click on participants and the raise hand icon will appear on the bottom left of the participants panel. Or, if your video is on, we invite you to do this the old fashioned way and wave your hand in the video. Our staff will call on you by name and ask you to unmute your microphone.You can also share here, in the chat. The chat will be shared with the family as a virtual guestbook.

Hit the wrong button. we had a constant debate about sign placement for the XC runs. Frank would always put the directional signs part way around the corners. When I helped I would move the signs so the runners could see the proper direction! CHEERS TO YOU FRANK!!
