Emily Peake Memorial Project meeting
October 21 @ 6:00 PM - 7:30 PM
The Emily Peake Community Garden closed earlier this year. SSCO now seeks to honor Emily Peake in another way. Last month we gathered with family members, neighbors and colleagues of Emily, to get acquainted with each other, and with Emily. We shared memories and stories of her, and reflected on her rich legacy, as a Native American activist, and as a neighbor. Before parting, we brainstormed ways in which to memorialize Emily.
Light refreshments available; feel free to bring a dish to share!
Notes from Sept. 16, 2019 gathering:
Focus of Oct. 21, 2019 meeting: prioritize and select a few memorial ideas for research and feasibility.
