If you donâ€™t see a wake listed for your area, please donâ€™t hesitate to start one. This isnâ€™t much more complicated than throwing a large birthday party. Simply find a place to gather, such as a bookstore, public park, or restaurant. Some of these will require reservations to use. Pick a date. Weâ€™re trying to time these to be or around Jordanâ€™s birthday, which is Oct. 17th. But any time this month is fine.
Decide on what people will do. Will they toast? Share testimonials? Sign a condolence card? Make sure you collect any needed supplies, or delegate someone to do this. Get name tags if you think youâ€™ll have lots of new faces.
Once you know all those details, please email me or post them on the forums at AgeofLegends.net. The sooner you can nail these down, the better! Weâ€™re a week away from our first events!
