Memorial Day Walk, Run, or Hike Outing - May 27, 2019

Drive to Franklin Park off of business Rt 7 just west of Purcellville and just east of Round Hill - 17501 Franklin Park Drive Purcellville Va
Enter the park, drive up the hill and on your right is the parking area, we can re-convene there.
The park has a 3 mile very pleasant path that goes around the perimeter of the park, it is not paved but that is about the extent of the "trail-ish ness" of it - one loop for a 3 mile walk or 2 for a six mile run or something in between - its your choice.
After about an hour or so of "activity" we head up to Bear Chase Brewery for a little refreshment. The Brewery is about  another 10 min up RT 7 west of the Park just off of rt 601. They open at 11:00.
If you prefer the Appalachian Trail - this is the hike part - the Brewery is just beyond a parking area that is off Rt 7 the Trail  will lead you you to Maine or Georgia - Its your choice.... or perhaps either Ravens Rock or Bear's Den Overlook if you'd rather be back in time for a beer.
Location  Franklin Park West of Purcellville, then Bear Chase Brewery in Bluemont
Car Pool option to meet at North Point Village Center at 08:30 - otherwise drive to Franklin Park. Please sign up so we know how many to expect: https://www.signupgenius.com/go/20f0b4babae2ba0fb6-memorial1

 


Celebration of Life for Edward Cacciapaglia.

Friday, May 10 at 11:00 am - 12:30 pm, reception immediately following.

Floris United Methodist Church
13600 Frying Pan Road
Herndon, VA

———-
Ed belonged to the Unitarian - Universalist Church in Reston, but our church is not large enough for his service.

When planning for this service, Ed told us, “I just want everyone to be happy.”
Jim Nagle gently and lovingly said, “Well Ed, I don’t think people will be happy, but they will be happy that they knew you.”
He nodded in agreement.

Ed helped plan the service and the music. Please join us.

Know that he wanted us to be happy in our memories of him.
