It’s nice to feel rain in the air, drops on the chin, and to hear pattering on the roof. Today, in between the much needed rain, was east coast balmy, a perfect day for a walk in Los Osos Oaks Preserve.
There’s two fundraisers this weekend raising funds worthwhile causes. From 10am – 4pm at Baywood Elementary there’s a Marrow Registry drive and fundraiser for the O’Donnell family who just lost their son Riley to Leukemia. Register as a donor and you may help save a life. Along with the bone marrow drive, there’s a Zumba dance party fundraiser from 11 to 12:30. Suggested donation is $10 and goes to help the O’Donnells pay for medical expenses.
Seems like a pretty good double bill.
Los Osos has lost one of it’s own far too early. Riley O’Donnell was a terrific kid. As a neighbors of the O’Donnell’s we saw Riley often in passing. He was just the kind of kid you loved having on your street, always smiling or waving. For a while there was a trampoline set up in the vacant lot next to their house and it was always fun to see him, his sister and friends bouncing in the air, flying and free. The kids were always willing to share space and let me bounce with our then toddler son. I also remember how much care and love he put into raising their chickens, which would often escape and wander about. Seeing Riley corralling the birds on our street was, for us, one of the charms of Los Osos life. He was a Los Osos kid. He was loved. He will be missed.
There is a celebration of his life this Saturday, 11:00am at Baywood Elementary. Here is a link to a facebook page, Celebrating Riley ODonnell’s Life.
