The Association will officially honor deceased individuals who have plaques on the Wall by reading their names and presenting members of their families with carnations. This year’s recognition will honor deceased individuals on plaques purchased since Jan. 1, 2012 and individuals on plaques purchased prior to Jan. 1, 2013, who have passed away in the last 12 months. If you have a deceased loved one who is listed on the Wall but haven’t been able to attend a previous ceremony, we will gladly honor those individuals upon request. RSVP to Pam Plath at email@example.com or (515) 294-2648 by Wednesday, April 17. If you have not yet purchased a plaque, there is still space available on Phase II. For complete details, go to www.isualum.org/wall.
