Chuck Peterson confirms Doug’s remembrance is Wednesday, August 17th at 7:00 PM.  I suggest those participating meet at the veteran’s memorial.  I selected the memorial because the gazebo may be in use that evening.

Chuck asks for those planning to participate to confirm via comment to this post.  He also asks those who’ve checked this blog to pass along the date and time by any means available to those who may have an interest in participating, but don’t check the blog with regularity.

Chuck sent me this photo of himself to help those attending locate him.

    Was at the gathering/memorial yesterday. Very grateful to Chuck Peterson for organizing. It was good to see all the other people who touched Doug’s life. I didn’t leave my email address to the man who plans to continue this web site. I’m sure you would find this yourself, but just in case…don’t forget to include and maintain the work Doug has posted on It is an electronic showcase of his work. It includes his web site and other commercial work, as well as images of two of his paintings. If you’d like to contact me, I’m available at deniseannrodgers @ (no spaces). Please let me know if there is any other way I can help.

    So sorry that I could not attend. Doug was a good friend and I loved his stories of the duck families at the Millpond. He was a fact-filled historian who will truly be missed. I wish there was a way to commemorate his extensive work as a ‘care-taker’ of the wildlife that he encountered, whether it was the ducks, swans, bunnies, and other creatures of the Millpond. Doug was unique.

    You'll find information about the resident ducks, birds, and critters residing at the Brighton millpond. I slip in my art and poetry, but my photography of wildlife and plants is the primary focus.
