Richard's memorial service will still take place at 1:30 p.m. this Saturday, December 18, 2010. Because of the potentially large crowd, the service has been moved from the University of Maryland Chapel to University First United Methodist Church. The church is right next to the UM campus, just across Campus Drive from the Inn and Conference Center. The address is 3621 Campus Drive, College Park, MD 20740. The church's website provides directions: http://uumcp.org/templates/System/details.asp?id=43853&PID=607462.
A reception will follow at the Samuel Riggs Alumni Center on the campus of the University of Maryland. For those who know the campus, it is at the north end of lot 1, next to Byrd Stadium and across the street from the Clarice Smith Performing Arts Center (CSPAC). Parking in lot 1 will be free, but it may be hectic as it's move-out day for the Christmas break. If you're not familiar with the campus this link, http://maps.google.com/maps/ms?msa=0&msid=117236153376291229376.000438d8f0a9ab6e37a65&hl=en&ie=UTF8&ll=38.987968,-76.938672&spn=0.012764,0.022901&iwstate1=dir&iwloc=000438d92c58e290c046a&source=embed , will give you a map of the area and turn by turn directions to
CSPAC. The Riggs center doesn't have a street address, so the mapping tools have trouble finding it.
