Amy's Life Celebration is Saturday, August 28th. It will be held at the Sebastopol Youth Annex, a fairly large hall with a beautiful deck. There will be a time for people to share their thoughts, memories, stories, the written word, as well as laughter and tears. We'll have a community pot luck, and then get to what Amy wanted most in her honor: music and dancing. Most of you know that Amy was a dancing fanatic and would get up and dance as long as the music was live and had a beat. Music will be provided by Midnight Sun Massive, a band that plays music from around the world and a local favorite. Amy and I have seen them many times and they never fail to get your hips shaking and feet moving. Still working on exact hours, but we have the hall from 2-10. I think the band will be on around 8pm.
