The memorial service is scheduled to begin at 1pm and will be held at Beth El Hebrew Congregation at 3830 Seminary Road, but with 200 fire vehicles expected for the procession and potentially over a thousand attendees, the out pouring of support will overwhelm the buildings capacity.  Tents have been erected across the street on the grounds of the Episcopal Seminary to capture the over flow crowd, on a day with projected rain showers all afternoon

Residents that are not attending the ceremony are urged to use alternate routes to help relieve the anticipated congestion in the area.

The link below will provide a map with anticipated closure times around the site of the service and procession to the cemetery.
