Memorial for Major Thomas Egan and Tribute to the Egan Warming Center

Friday, December 17th
11:00am
Corner of 1st and Blair in Eugene

Join us to celebrate the memory of Major Thomas Egan. Major Egan, a homeless veteran, died during a snowstorm in Eugene in December 2008.  His experience was the inspiration for the Egan Warming Center, a temporary shelter that serves homeless citizens in Lane County during extreme cold weather.

The memorial will include guest speakers, a color guard and a wreath laying ceremony. We will also honor the volunteers and faith communities that make the Egan Warming Center possible. Coffee and hot chocolate will be served.
