The memorial has been set for two Juneau brothers who died in a boating accident last weekend.
A Celebration of Life for 26-year-old Casey Newman and 23-year-old Kelly Newman will be at the Twisted Fish on Saturday from 5 p.m. to 10 p.m. They are the sons of Nancy Davis and Joe Newman of Juneau.
They drowned when their 18-foot Lund skiff capsized Friday evening near Tenakee Springs. Twenty-six-year-old Jim Brown Jr. was able to swim to shore.
The men were returning to Tenakee from a day of hunting across the inlet.
Friends and family are asked to bring food and stories to share at the memorial.
In lieu of flowers, a Casey and Kelly Newman Memorial Fund has been set up at Wells Fargo Bank, to establish a scholarship at Eaglecrest.
