Celebration of Life for Kaz Smolenski

Public ContentAnyone can view this post

This update provides links for remote participation in Kaz Smolenski’s Celebration of Life Saturday, August 21 at 2 pm.  There is a Youtube Live link for just watching the event, and a Zoom Meeting link for those that are moved to share. Please take a moment to read this now as it is a little complicated. 

YouTube Live Stream: WMU will broadcast the memorial using their video/livestream system.  EVERYONE that is remote can/should watch using this link.   Join YouTube Livestream:  The live stream will start approximately 5 minutes before the event at 2pm EST on August 21.

 Zoom Meeting remote speakers: About a half an hour after we start, the moderator will ask for those that wish to share remotely do so through Zoom. ONLY those that wish to speak need to open the Zoom Meeting link.  We recommend that you pause or mute the YouTube Live transmission if you are speaking on Zoom Meeting to prevent audio/video confusion problems, as there may be up to a 30 sec delay between Zoom and the YouTube broadcast.  It is our intent to start the Zoom portion about 15 min prior to the 2pm start time.
