Funeral Services
Services will be held Friday, June 1st at the Beaverton Christian Church, located at 13600 SW Allen Blvd, Beaverton Oregon 97005. (MapQuest Link)

4:00pm - 6:30pm: 1st Viewing
6:30pm - 8:30pm: Services
8:30pm - 10:00pm: 2nd Viewing

Organizing a Group Ride to Services
I think since most folks aren't out of work until after 5pm, we could all organize at the Starbucks next to Fred Meyer at the Beaverton Town Center before the 6:30 service starts. We can all collect up there, and then make the short jaunt from Starbucks over to the Beaverton Christian Church as a group departing Starbucks about 6pm. That should put us at the church just before the service starts.

Final Farewell Procession
Daniel's body will be sent back east for burial, and since organizing an official procession requires coordination with law enforcement and all that jazz - some people are giving some consideration to having somewhat of an "ad hoc" group ride to follow Daniel out to the airport as a final farewell. Since the route is freeway, it would be easier than having a through-town procession of bikes. I will get more info on the scheduled transit time, and Ingrid's input on the matter, and post the details here.

Candle Light Vigil
The evening of Saturday, June 2nd, there will be a candle light held vigil for Daniel at the park beneath the Morrison bridge, the final resting scene of Daniel's crash. The vigil is set to begin at 8:30pm (sunset).

Ride for Danny
Please join us for a memorial ride and fund-raiser in honor of Daniel Newell. We will gather at Bob Lamphere's Beaverton Honda/Yamaha at 10:00 AM Saturday Morning, and depart at 11:00am.

This will NOT BE A RACE, NOR WILL IT BE A STUNT SHOW. It will be a show of support for Daniel's family and for motorcycle safety in general. The route will be a simple loop around the city, passing by the scene of the accident, and ending back at Beaverton Honda.

We are asking for at least $10 donations, but please give whatever you can afford. Danny has 6 kids, and all donations will go to his family.
