A memorial service for former Mayor Ken Edwards will be held at 3 p.m. Sunday in the Greek Amphitheatre at Santa Monica High School, 601 Pico Blvd.
The public ceremony will be conducted by the Rev. James Conn, minister of the Church in Ocean Park. Conn and Edwards were colleagues on the City Council.
Edwards died last week after a long battle against liver cancer. First elected to the City Council in 1981, Edwards was elected mayor two years later. He was reelected to the council for a four-year term last November.
Family members have requested that in lieu of flowers donations be given to the Stepping Stone Crisis Center for Youths, 245 Hill St., or to the Vista del Mar Child Care Service, 3200 Motor Ave., Los Angeles 90064.
