WHITE ROCK — A date has been set for the public memorial for White Rock's well-known homeless person Ryan Ashe, who passed away earlier this summer.
On Friday, Sept. 27, the community will have a chance to come out and share their memories of Ashe at the White Rock Community Centre from 5 to 7 p.m.
"We're just going to have a video presentation and food, a chance for people to say something if they'd like to," said Ashe's sister, Orphee Martin. "It's just something for his friends and the community to get together and say goodbye.
"We could have had it at the Victory (Memorial Park) crematorium where he was cremated, but we thought it would be better to have something right uptown so that it would be easier for people to get to."
The memorial is open to everyone and anyone and Martin is hoping to see a good turnout at the event.
"It's basically what the community wanted and it's a way for us to say thanks to all of his friends, he's had quite a number of them over the years," she said.
