Immediately after, there will be a reception, upstairs on the terrace.

And for those who would like to contribute, there will be an opportunity for a small potluck, in the Hawaiian style. Please mention it in the response to Tina.

We have set up an account in the name of “Dreamspirit in memorial of Anita McDonald” at Schools First Credit Union, for supporting those who help the homeless community. Tina has the details on how to contribute.

If you would like to share memories of Anita, there will be time at the end of the ceremony, and during the reception. Please inform Tina in your response.

We hope you can attend this celebration of a life that touched us all.
