It’s back on! You’re invited to help celebrate Betty’s life
This is just a quick note to tell all of you about the upcoming Memorial Program for Betty G. Miller.
As you all probably know by now, Betty died December 3, 2012 (see https://purpleswirlarts.wordpress.com/2012/12/18/passagesbettygmiller/ for her obituary). This is the third time we’ve started to plan a memorial. The last one, planned for April 12, 2014 had to be cancelled when I fell and broke my hip. I was in a rehab facility working on learning to walk again last April. I’m a lot better, though walking with a cane for now.
I’m finally able to work on a memorial, and with the help of several friends, we’re planning one for December 7th. It will be held in the lobby of the Washburn Art Building at Gallaudet because that’s where Betty was happy. Here’s the specific information:
Sunday, December 7, 2014
Washburn Art Building
Gallaudet University, Washington, DC
Memorial Program 10:00 AM to 12:00 PM
Gallery closes at 1:00 PM
Jan DeLap will be the emcee for the program, and there will be light refreshments served before and after the program. Parking at Gallaudet will be free, no need to get a permit.
Please RSVP to NanC (a temporary address) ASAP so that we have a count for the chairs and food.

P.S.: I recently went to NTID for their Viva De’VIA events. I’d never used Instagram before, so I played around with it. You can see my photos at: http://instagram.com/purpleswirlarts
P.P.S.: Patti Durr at NTID has posted some videos from the banquet online. Brenda Schertz played the part of Betty, going up to different tables and giving her biography. See it here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cjvyyPEnrok&list=TLvLXwAUcVi70&index=1
