Candlelight Vigil Tonight at 5:30 PM

A reminder that we are holding a candlelight vigil tonight for Mr. Gregory Loper, who was killed last Friday by an intoxicated hit-and-run driver on Lehigh Ave.

Time: Tonight, 5:30 - 6:30 pm
Location: Corner of Lehigh Ave and Jasper Streets, in Kensington
We will have a limited quantity of candles and umbrellas on hand.

We are all pedestrians, and many of us are frequently bicyclists. So it a personally resonant, as well as deeply saddening, tragedy whenever a pedestrian or cyclist is killed by a vehicle. Mr. Loper's story is especially terrible, however, as he was the father of eleven children. Those interested in ways they can help his widow and his family should send an e-mail to cyclingelves@gmail.com.
