Friends: I know that most of you are aware of the upcoming memorial, but I thought I would post the details. I hope I am not repeating something displayed elsewhere.

A celebration of the life of Michele Rowley Leary will be held on June 23 starting at noon at the Morro Bay Veterans hall. It will be a time to share memories about this wonderful sea captain. A potluck and BBQ will be served.

That same day there will be a parade of boats in Morro Bay Harbor taking her final voyage across the bar at 9 a.m. on the Rita G. Her ashes will be scattered outside the harbor mouth near the rock.

If you are interested in helping or contributing to this celebration, contact either Hunter Kilpatrick (772-7501) or Jackie Nungaray (772-8281).

Hope to see you all there for the memorial.
