The White Center Community is coming together to memorialize one our fallen community members on December 1st. Help is needed to prepare soil and plant flowers in front of Soul’s Kitchen at the corner of 16th and Roxbury (map below). Volunteers can just show up on Saturday around 11 a.m. to lend a hand for this great local tribute.
The memorial was discussed at a community meeting held at Mago Signs Monday night, where 25 or so people got together to honor Margaret, share memories and talk about how best to honor her.
The proposed memorial will include a large boulder with a plaque, surrounded by flowers and plants.
“We welcome any volunteers to please join in with digging out what’s currently there, laying down soil, and planting the new flowers,” Vera said. “We will leave a space for the boulder that will hold the plaque in honor of Margaret. If possible, volunteers should bring work gloves, small shovels, or other things they think might come in handy.”
SAVE THE DATE FOR MEMORIAL UNVEILING DEC. 1
The proposed unveiling of Margaret’s memorial is set for just before the annual White Center Tree Lighting at 4:30 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 1 (the tree lighting will take place just across from the memorial site at Veteran’s Triangle Park), so be sure to mark your calendars.
