  • Celebrate Larry Selman's Life

    Dear Key Leader Friends around the world---We have received confirmation that the Celebration of Larry Selman's Life will be held on April 3, 2013 at 7 pm at the Greenwich House Music School , 46 Barrow Street, New York City.  Please spread the word of this event--even though I know few of you are close enough to join us, but you would be very welcome!!!  Alice Elliott has asked me to speak on behalf of all the Key Leader friends of Larry, and I am very honored to do that. We have the three final Larry mail bags of Key Leader grams that we will bring to the service. 

    Alice wanted me to thank all the many people who have already donated in honor of Larry and his life of service. Contributions are still being received to cover the cost of the memorial stone that will be placed at his grave. A tax-deductible donation can be made to BBC (Bedford Barrow Commerce Block Association) c/o Alice Elliott, 107 Bedford Street, Upper One, New York, NY 10014, or donate on-line through PayPal at www.welcome change.org, click the "Donate Now" button.

    Thanks in advance for spreading the word and pausing on April 3rd to remember Larry's life and contribution to all of us...Dick
