Shutdown Vigil - November 30, 2017

Shutdown Vigil - November 30th, 2017
On November 30th, 2017, HERC will be there to share stories, hold a torch and stand vigil on the 5th year after the City of Heroes shut down.  We are not seeking Radio Station support for this activity.

There is no agenda from us that day: no activities planned, no games or contests.  Just us.  We're here for the City of Heroes veterans.  No set hours: visit when you can. Lights go out when you do.

/em holdtorch

I considered starting the month with my 24/7 vigil from previous years, but apparently it was very distracting (and/or amusing) to a lot of folks that didn't check my background text. I'll reserve it for just a week this year, and I should be able to spend a decent portion of the evening on the 30th enjoying the company of other citizens of our City :)

Tomorrow's the day.  Come when you can, stay as long as you like.  Drop on by Atlas Park and hold up the torch, while folks remember the game they love.

This was the first vigil I was able to participate in, usually because of my work. But I was able to throw together a live stream of some of the event.
