Ari Update:
A Celebration of Life - This Saturday
 August 19, 2017

Good Morning All, 

On behalf of the Schultz family and the organizers of the subject event, I would like to extend their invitation to join us at the Pine
Bluffs recreational area in Stow on Saturday, August 19th for a celebration of Ari’s life.  The day will consist of music, games,
BBQ/refreshment, more specific details are in the event flyer.    

Most importantly this will be a day where all who were touched by Ari with his endless joy and appetite for life.  His spirit
never faded even in the face of his brave battle to regain his health, a fight that he never gave up.  There were so many who’s hearts were broken to
learn of Ari’s passing the services had to be limited to those who knew the family personally.   Erica and Mike know and appreciate that the loss
and sorrow of Ari’s passing extended well beyond that group, and asked the event organizers to carry on with the event to give all who would like to come and celebrate our little hero’s life the opportunity to do so.
We are also looking for volunteers to help on the day of the event.  The commitment to volunteer will be broken into shifts so there will be time to help and time to enjoy the day (please see the volunteer flyer for more details, especially need help with the closing shift).  Thanks in
advance for your help, and special thanks to Bill Conley, Jen Burks, and Samantha James for spearheading the effort to organize this awesome
event!  (note: This is a rain or shine event - big tent! - please follow the instructions to get your tickets in advance).   

Look forward to seeing you there!
