Community Memorial for Mellie and Melisa Stasko

Dear GW and EVG Friends,

As most of you are already aware, our community suffered a terrible tragedy a few weeks ago, when a violent crime took two of our own, Mellie and Melisa Stasko.

Please join us on Friday, January 15th at 5:00PM at the river walk behind Wholefoods. We will take a walk together to The Windsor, where Mellie and Melisa lived. There we will have a short ceremony, lasting approximately 10-15 minutes. Bringing items such as candles, cards, and flowers will be permitted. We encourage people to walk or carpool and park in the Hillard Ave municipal lot.

In case of inclement weather, the ceremony will take place on Tuesday, January 19th at 5:00 PM.

We are a small group of mothers who have come together to show our children and community that goodness always prevails. Though we’re sending this e-mail to only our school families and friends, the ceremony is meant for everyone. Please pass this along to other people who you think might want to be there with us.
