From the City of Lafayette:
A memorial plaque honoring the late Ashley Dias will be dedicated on Friday, September 2 at 7:00 p.m. at Lafayette Plaza (corner of Plaza Way and Golden Gate Way in downtown Lafayette).
The cast brass plaque honors Ashley Dias who died after being struck by a vehicle while performing his duties as a crossing guard in front of Stanley Middle School last year. The Dias family had suggested the plaque to the City to honor Ashley and serve as a reminder to “Please Slow Down” and keep our community safe. Working with the Dias family, the City selected the planter between the Wayside Inn and the Park Theater as the location for the plaque.
The public is welcome to attend the event. Light refreshments will be served.
