A New Orleans-style jazz funeral parade will kick off a memorial Saturday for longtime Colfax resident Pete Hanson. Hanson, a musician and retired educator who taught at Colfax High School, passed away Feb. 28. The public is invited to assemble in front of the Colfax Library at 11:30 a.m. and join the traditional "second line" paraders, who will follow a brass band from the library to the Sierra Vista Community Center. After the parade, a potluck celebration of life will take place from noon to 4 p.m. at the community center. Festivities will include music by a variety of local groups and ensembles. Attendees are asked to provide a dish and to share their favorite "Pete stories."
