OLOC has several ways for you to remember Old Lesbians who have died.
On the OLOC Memorial Plaques:
Have a Lesbian's name plate fixed to our memorial plaques, which we display at each National Gathering. We ask a donation of $20.00 (less if you can't and more if you can). Please include birth and death years and an electronic photo. We will use the photo in the memorial slide show.
At the Ceremony and Slide Show at the National Gatherings:
At each National Gathering we hold a ceremony to honor the lives and dedication of Old Lesbians who have died. The ceremony includes a power point slide show with photos of as many of them as we have available. Please send us a photo for the slide show, preferably by email. We prefer photos that show the Lesbian when she is old. Watch the Reporter for details for the next Gathering. We encourage donations to cover the costs of the ceremony. Any Lesbian submitted for the plaque will also be included in the slide show (unless you request that she not be).
In the OLOC Reporter:
We include a memorial section in each OLOC Reporter. We prefer stories sent by e-mail, so if you don't have it, please find a friend who does to send it for you. We also publish a photo if we receive one electronically that is of print quality. Please include the Lesbian's connection with OLOC (if any) early in the memorial and focus on her Lesbian life. Keep stories to 250 words or less. Send them to firstname.lastname@example.org If you want the same story to appear on the Website, include a donation if possible and tell us that.
On the Web
OLOC provides space on our site to pay tribute to Old Lesbians who have died. You can send your stories, photos or memorials about your loved ones for us to post and/or print. We only ask that you limit them to a reasonable length (500 words or less). We will need to have entries arrive electronically. If you don't have the capability of doing it that way, find a friend who will send it for you. Take a look at the ones already posted for ideas about what to say. We would appreciate a donation, as it will help us continue the work of OLOC, including the website and the newsletter.
