Organizers say that all are invited to take part in this short event. It will also serve to help give Jim a boost as he recovers from his recent bout with cancer and the surgery that went with it.
Participants are asked to meet at the Farragut Statue by 5:pm. From there, the convoy will head up E. Broadway, turn down Gst to the beach, go along Day BLVD to Nst where cars will make a brief stop at Jim's Bantry way home where holiday posters, signed by supporters will be given to Jim. The whole event should take about an hour. All are welcome. More info to follow as the date draws near.
