John’s memorial will be on Saturday, May 30th in Vancouver. The service will start at 2pm. There’ll be folks around starting at 1-ish. It will be held at the Unitarian Church of Vancouver, 949 W. 49th Ave. (at Oak St.) Musical instruments welcome. Bring some cookies to share if you like.
The memorial will be followed by a housefilk at 6pm at the home of Tom & Peggy Lunderville, 8892 Armstrong Ave. in Burnaby. It’s a big green house (full of guitars!) next to a park.
For those of you who do not know what a housefilk is, it is an extended musical house party concentrating on filk music, which is either the folk music of science fiction, or the songs that people who identify as filk singers sing. John preferred the latter definition to my recollection; it was appropriately amorphous and self-selecting.
