There will be two memorial services for Eric Belser. The first one will be held on Saturday, February 3 at the Wrights Corners Fire Company at 4043 Lake Avenue, Lockport, NY.

The memorial service will begin at 11 am and will immediately be followed by a potluck luncheon at the firehall. The potluck is being coordinated by Matthew Bulvi Kornaker on the SCA side.

Eric was a volunteer and officer for the Wrights Corners Fire Department. They are providing significant assistance and support at this time and we expect many members to be in attendance along with Eric and Katerin’s families. This is not an SCA event.

We will have the hall for the afternoon so people can gather and share memories. Please bring games, songs, and stories to share. The firehall will be manning the bar. Homebrewers who wish to share their work are also welcome.

For people who are coming from out of town and are in need of crash space, please contact Wendy Knier Hart, our crash space coordinator. Anyone in the Barony who has space to offer, please let Wendy know.

The second service will be held at the West Sand Lake Firehall east of Albany, New York, at a date yet to be determined. More information will follow.

Thank you all for your support.
