Dear Community of Lennox Sweeny,

August 26, 1941 - October 13, 2005

The Community Memorial and Celebration of Life for Lennox will be held at
2pm Saturday, November 5, 2005, at MACLA, 510 S. First St., (between William
& Reed) in downtown San Jose. Our beloved Lennox was truly an individual
and so his celebration will be a wonderful event. Please bring photos,
stories, and your full hearts. We will come together with a memorial with
sharing, poetry, followed by music from Annie & the Vets, Raging Grannies
and others including rap and hiphop. And of course, food.
Lennox's cremains will be present. Come and meet his cousins and the many,
many people he's touched.

Set up time 12:00 for those who want to help set up. We must end by 7pm and
clean up entirely by 8pm and appreciate those who can help this effort.
Donations can be made to VFP to help cover costs. If you have music to
offer contact George Johnson 650-207-6073. If you have food to bring,
contact Sharon at 650-799-1070. Email: kufeldt1 [at] Let's give
Lennox a great party! Would someone like to coordinate pictures, etc.? Let
us know what you have to share.

Of course some of you will be attending one of Lennox's favorite Saturday
activities, at the corner of Winchester and Santa Clara at noon Saturday
before the memorial.

All Veterans and Associate Members of Veterans For Peace are invited to don
Orange T-shirts (available) and march in Len's name in the San
Francisco Veterans Day Parade. We're bringing light to the humanitarian
issue of "Vietnam Veterans and Vietnamese People are still dying from Agent
Orange, Justice to all Agent Orange Victims". This is a solemn occasion and
not a protest, but an educational effort. We will then go to join the Agent
Orange Accountability demonstration/tabling outside the Green Festival.
Non-veterans are invited to the tabling at the Green Festival.

There will be a story about Lennox in the San Jose Mercury News on Friday
Oct. 28. There will be a link to information about the memorial on the website.
