Caylee Memorial J Blanchard Park
Current mood: excited
On Tuesday June 16, 2009 at 6 pm there will be a public memorial to acknowledge the one-year anniversary of the stunning loss of one of God's blessings, Caylee Marie Anthony at J Blanchard Park in Orlando, Florida @ Pavilion #2.
I was approached to speak at the event and then discovered that the "event" was more of a desire then a planned event. I then asked a Facebook group of 22,000 members honoring Caylee's memory to host the event and help get it organized.
Two of the groups leaders, founder Scotti Simpson and fellow Alabama resident Regina Lyle, took on the challenge of supplying the leadership necessary to get this event planned on such short notice.
Scotti is a student at Jacksonville State University in Alabama who has a heart for Caylee and for abused children. If you would like to know more about Scotti visit his Facebook page.
There have been many volunteers working on this event and along with the In Memory of Caylee Facebook group we have had support (physical and financial) from bloggers at Humble Opinion and ScaredMonkeys. Financial support has poured in from all over and any money left over will be applied to a tree to be planted in Caylee's name at J Blanchard Park.
I am working on having a local video streaming company I know it stream the event on the Internet. However, with such short
notice that may not be possible. I will be video taping the event and I will then place online for everyone to see. I will post more information about this in the days to come.
If you are in the Central Florida area I invite you to attend this event. It will begin promptly at 6 pm and end no later then 7 pm. We need volunteers to help with set up (which starts at 5 pm) and clean up (starting immediately at the close of the event). The park closes at 8 pm and the Dean Road gate is locked at 7:30. Children are welcome. Rest rooms and playgrounds are nearby.
This event is about honoring Caylee and all of the missing, abused or endangered innocents who need our support in Central Florida and America. It is not about the promotion of any one person or group.
I sincerely hope that you will attend and be respectful of Caylee and the rules & regulations of J Blanchard Park.
Thank you and God bless,
