It is with regret that we let everyone know that Ian Buchanan (who organized the sound and light at the Reunion with his brother Scott) passed away in May, from cancer, at age 56.
His wishes were that there be no wake or funeral. However, many of his friends agreed with the idea of remembering him in a way that he would have supported. Since his teenage years and early 20's were spent as a sound and light technician with several area bands, dating back to the 60's and 70's, we felt that an evening of music would be appropriate. To that end, two bands with members that go back with Ian to those early days, have generously donated their time and effort for this event. There is a poster on the main page of the Fisher Park website www.fisherpark.net/Documents/ian_buchanan.pdf with all the details (it's an Adobe PDF).
Some friends of Ian have generously donated items for a raffle, however if any of you wish to add an item, please bring it the evening of the event or contact Scott Buchanan (his email is scottbee at rogers dot com) for pick-up.
All proceeds from this event will go to an education fund for Ian & Sophie's three boys. Hopefully, you'll be able to join us Nov. 30th. for an evening of fine music, while at the same time, supporting a worthwhile cause.
Thanks in advance for your support, Scott Buchanan
