I received the notice below from two sources, one saying 6 pm and one saying 6:30 pm. My guess is that if you show up at 6 p, you'll have it covered, and the formal part of the service starts at 7 pm. I sort of edited and combined the two notices, but thank you to Hosanna and Vic for adding them to the site! I tried to put it in a format so anyone can copy and paste below and send it on to whomever you like.
There will be a CELEBRATION OF LIFE FOR SUSAN BARNES Saturday, September 2nd, 2006 starting at 6 P.M. in Anchorage. This notice was posted on the Grrlz List - a weekly e-mail connecting the Womyn's Community in Anchorage:
Everyone is invited to a Potluck and Sing-A-Long, yes everyone! It is a gathering to celebrate the life of one of our own Susan Barnes. Susan enjoyed Sing-A-Longs and Potlucks - so it is in her memory that we gather and in her spirit of building community - we invite everyone. Out North Theater has graciously offered us the use of their space on Sat, Sept 2, 2006 at 6 pm. Come join us. Bring a dish to share, an instrument and song book if you have them. We will try to have as many of the song books from “back in the day.” Most importantly, bring your hearts open to singing and building community. Contact Lynne at 563-0757 for more information. ... RIP sister-friend.
Had she only been able to receive this love that is so expressed nationally on this site! I am humbled, and it is our privilege to pay tribute to her. I am not a writer. After her Celebration of Life, I will ask someone to assist me in putting down the history of these last 3 weeks.
I loved reading oysters, chocolate, and martini's! This, after we had them on the menu for Saturday. Xena and friends, pictures etc. will be there too!
[wish I could send my six-foot cardboard Xena standee... cb]
You all will be there with us and we will toast you, with Susan, at 7:00. Alaska time. We have her here and will take her to Homer before the snow flies, along with Junebug and Maggie.
We remain grateful and thank you for all of your many supports.
For those "Outside," as they say in Alaska, 7 pm Alaska time is 11 pm Eastern Time. You should be able to figure it out from there.
And just to bump it up to the top of the site, here's all the music that's been posted here, including the famous Xena funeral song, performed by Lucy Lawless.
