It’s a potluck and will be followed at approximately 5 p.m. by a procession to Roberts Creek Beach and the spreading of ashes.

Also on Saturday, drop by the annual sunflower seedling fundraiser for the Stephen Lewis Foundation. There will be a wide variety of sunflowers to choose from. Funds support grassroots programs to help people in Africa. The sale runs from 12:30 to 3 p.m. at Cedar Grove Road just off Beach Avenue.
