you choose an action, you choose the consequences of that action....When
you desire a consequence, you had damned well better take the action
that would create it.

late open space advocate on Sunday, April 23. Between 75 and 100 people
braved a rainy, blustery day to honor a true champion of the environment.

South Hills Park to be re-dedicated as "Ellen's
Park" in April 23 Ceremony
To: All South Hills neighbors and friends of Ellen Steiner
There will be a memorial service and ceremony to dedicate "Ellen's
Park" (formerly South Hills Park) in honor of Ellen Steiner on
Sunday, April 23rd from 1:00 to 4:00 p.m.
Washoe County Commissioner Dave Humke will read the resolution to
re-dedicate the park and the Reverend John Steinfeld will conduct
the memorial service. A barbeque will follow. People will have an
opportunity to share remembrances of Ellen if they so wish toward
the end of the service.
The meat, drinks, dessert, plates, etc., will be provided. Should
people wish to bring a pot luck dish (e.g., casserole or salad) it
will be appreciated. As seating is limited, we ask that you please
bring your own folding chairs or blanket. The barbecue will include
hot dogs, hamburgers, chicken & pork.
RSVP if you plan to attend and let us know your meat or veggie preference.
We would like to know in order to make sure that we have plenty of
the type of barbecue that people would like. Please call Elaine
Steiner at (775) 853-4059 to leave a message or get answers
to your questions.
We hope you will be able to attend and join in a celebration to honor
the life of a truly remarkable woman.
