A Message from The Oliver Family:
We just wanted to send a quick note to thank you all for the incredible outpouring, to thank you for being able to join us on Saturday and to answer some common questions that have come up. Please read each of these carefully to make sure any questions you have get answered and maybe even to clarify things that you thought you already knew.
Date: Saturday June 18th
Open House: We will be hosting an open house from 12-2 to mingle, reminisce and view a remembrance video of Bo.
Service: At 2pm we will start a dedicated service to celebrate Bo’s life. You can probably anticipate it lasting about two hours. There will a lot of music (as Bo would want) as well as a good deal sharing about Bos life, his message, etc.
Size: As of the writing of this message, 373 people have responded that they will be attending. We anticipate this will continue to grow to well over 400 by Saturday. No worries we have room, but we will likely need to use an overflow on the second floor which will have an audio and video feed from the main room on the 3rd floor. If you end up joining the service from there, we thank you in advance for your understanding.
Parking: There is parking in front of the building on Front Street. The right side is metered parking and the left is permit only parking. These permits will be issued by attendants at the front gate and reserved for elderly, handicapped and close family. The neighborhood behind the building has ample free curb side parking for several blocks. This is usually pretty open on a Saturday afternoon. Lastly, there is a large parking garage on the corner of Lombard and Presidents St just one block across Presidents from the building. You can use Google Maps street view to view the building and surrounding area before coming to get a sense of the area.
Elevator: There is an elevator as well as stairs to get to the upper floors. There will be attendants there to help you find it, feel free to ask.
Tickets: You do NOT need a ticket to attend. We only had you register so we could keep an eye on how many to expect. Thank you all for helping us with that.
Dress: Dress is casual…. this is for Bo after all, he wouldn’t want a bunch of people in suits.
If you have any further questions, please ask.
Thank you all so much and we will see you Saturday.
