Don Links Plaque Dedication
Wednesday, October 2, 2013 • 8:18pm
Event: Don Links Plaque Dedication Ceremony
Where: Madison Recreation Complex (MRC) – near the flag poles
When: Saturday, October 12, 2013
Time: 2:30 - 3:30 PM
The Madison Recreation Advisory Committee would like to announce the unveiling of the Don Links Plaque at the MRC and respectfully requests that you strongly encourage your program’s families to attend.
While Don’s recent passing was a sad day for all of us who knew him, this dedication will not take on the somber tone of a memorial, but rather a short celebration of the time, effort, and passion that he put into this fantastic facility.
While many know of the “public” effort to get this project to completion, Don spent countless hours on details that most people never know of, many of which were performed after he was diagnosed with ALS. Despite the physical challenges, Don never considered backing away from his commitment to this project. We simply ask that if your children use the facility; you give 60 minutes of your Saturday to recognize a man and his family’s commitment to Madison Sports.
Don’s wife, Joanne, and their 13 year old twins will be in attendance and we hope that this dedication ceremony will provide a small bit of happiness for them by seeing overwhelming community support in the form of an extremely large gathering.
Food and drinks will be available at the Hut.
This event will be rain or shine – as Don would have intended (“It never rains on a football field”).
