Farewell to Oreon Mann

Oreon MannOreon Mann's Memorial Service Details  

It will be on Tuesday, September 4 at 6 pm at the Unitarian Universalist Congregation of Atlanta.  You may think that you know where this church is located but you need to know that they have moved out of their previous building as of three weeks ago.  They are now in an office building at 1190 West Druid Hills Drive NE, #150, Atlanta, GA 30329.  GPS should take you to the correct place but, just in case, take I-85 to North Druid Hills Road exit and turn left.  Go past the Salvation Army church and turn left at the McDonald’s.  Do not go as far as Buford Highway.  There will be a short reception immediately following the service.

Claudia has asked that no flowers be sent.  They would prefer that you make a donation to the charity of your choice.  You should tell the charity to send the acknowledgment to Claudia Ammann at 8746 South 1405 West, West Jordan, UT  84088.  They would also be happy to receive letters and cards at that same address.

The City of Atlanta and the Atlanta City Council have voted to rename Freedom Parkway "John Lewis Freedom Parkway" and to dedicate a Freedom Riders Play Space in the park in honor of U.S. Congressman John Lewis. Atlanta City Council Member, Andre Dickens, headed up the effort that was unanimously supported by the Inman Park Neighborhood Association several months ago. The dedication ceremony will be held at 1 p.m. Wednesday, Aug. 22, 2018 in the 600 block of Barnett Street, N.E. behind Moe’s Southwest Grill. The new street signage unveiling will take place at the southeast corner of Freedom Parkway and Ponce de Leon Avenue. In a press release from the city, it stated "In March 2017, the Atlanta City Council unanimously passed a resolution authored by Councilmember Andre Dickens and cosponsored by all council members to create a Task Force to determine an appropriate manner in which to honor U.S. Congressman John Lewis, such as renaming a street or naming or dedicating a public place such as a building, plaza, park or other similar public place. It was determined after public deliberation and input that Freedom Parkway should be renamed to honor the Congressman and Civil Rights leader who has dedicated his life to fighting for the freedom and humanity of others."
