Remembering their friend with music, food and fun


The Haverhill Gazette

---- — It was a moving tribute.

Relatives and friends of Steven Lyons packed the area around Winnekenni Castle last Saturday to remember the young man who was hit by a train and killed in 2007.

The second annual Steven Lyons Memorial Rock Out & Cookout featured live bands, food and family fun. Music was played by 15 local acts, including several area youth bands. An art show, raffles, and children’s games were part of the festivities.

The Steve Lyons Fund hosted the event. All proceeds go to The Sad Cafe in Plaistow, N.H.

The Steve Lyons Fund is a nonprofit group run by the friends and family of Steven William Lyons, who was 23 when he died.
