Danny Newville Memorial Walk – Save the date!

5th Annual Memorial Walk is Saturday, August 4th

For the past 10 1/2 months, I’ve been writing about 18 year old Danny Newville’s disappearance from my own town of New London, Minnesota in 2002. It’s hard to believe it’s been almost a year since I first started blogging about Danny’s case. (Read from the beginning…)

Back in July 2014, a co-worker of mine asked if I would share the information about Danny’s First Memorial Walk on my blog. It was held Saturday, August 2nd, and a small group of family and friends gathered to make the trek from New London Spicer High School, down Main Street, through downtown, and ending at Old Grey Park. There, they shared memories and planted a tree in Danny’s honor. If you haven’t already seen the video, please take a moment to watch it here: https://youtu.be/MFSZo5j5rhw

This year, Danny’s family and friends will once again gather at NLS High School for the 5th Annual Danny Newville Memorial Walk. The event starts at 11am, followed by a BBQ afterward at Henderson Lake.

I asked Danny’s father, Russ, if I could put together a flyer to help promote this year’s event and he was happy for the offer. He wanted me to stress that all are welcome, and that he and Lidia (Danny’s stepmom) are thankful for all the tips and support this past year.

Baker Printing of Spicer generously offered to print the flyers at no cost. Please help us spread the word by printing a copy of this flyer and taping it up at work. I would love to see a big crowd turn out for this year’s event, and would also love a chance to thank all the people who have helped me try and piece together Danny’s story this past year.

A Facebook event has been created at the following link. Please let us know if you plan to attend, and share the event on your newsfeed.
