Memorial ceremony will honor students killed in house fire

A ceremony will be held at Van Cleve Park today in memory of Brian Heiden, Amanda Speckien and Elizabeth Wencl, the three University students who died in a Dinkytown house fire last September.

University officials will place a plaque alongside a river birch tree adorned with ribbons at the park.

Van Cleve Park is on the corner of Como Avenue Southeast and 15th Avenue Southeast, less than a block from where the house fire occurred.

The ceremony begins at 11 a.m.

The plaque will state: “This tree was planted in memory of our neighbors and friends on April 22, 2004 – in the spirit of community through hope, friendship and respect.”
