Aberdeen, SD (KELO AM and KWSN) - South Dakota’s basketball community will pause on Saturday at 3PM to honor the career of Don Meyer, who passed away on Sunday after a battle with cancer. Officials planning the memorial service for Coach Don Meyer are advising attendees to plan ahead as a large crowd is expected and heavier than usual traffic and demand for parking around the Northern State University Barnett Center will require extra time.
Parking will be available at the Barnett Center north parking lot. Once that is filled, alternative parking will be available in the Jerde Hall parking lot across the street from Barnett as well as in the adjacent Johnson Fine Arts Center parking lot. Parking will also be available across campus in the west student lot along Lincoln and Washington Avenues.
Additionally, a live stream of the service will be available at http://client.stretchinternet.com/client/northern.portal. The family is also requesting that all those in attendance refrain from using hand held recording devices such as cameras and smart phones.
