The beauty (and sometimes the bane) about this AMAZING Community is the mass/volume of information. đź’ž
That said, Is it possible to get an update on 'shells for Denise'?...are shells still being accepted?...if so, where (the Pilgrim's Office? At The Tree?). Also, is there something set up in place for us to honor ALL of those Camino brother's and Sister's who have given up Soul whilst on Camino?

'they' being, the Pilgrims Office?
No, it was Pilgrim House, and all the shells they collected are now at Denise's tree outside of Astorga.
Somehow, the shells have found their way out to the memorial tree just west of Astorga.
'Somehow' was @Peter Fransiscus , who very kindly took them there from Santiago.
At this point, anyone walking the Frances can leave their shells there directly.

With covid overturning normalcy as it has, this may have gotten pushed into the back cupboard. But inquiring minds want to know - Was there a boost? Or not?
Depending on which party wins in the next Astorga municipal elections, the Memorial Park may get a real boost later this year. Or not!

Many, various, and continuing.

I gathered some PPI friends in the district and we met with THREE city council members, one of whom is a member of the Astorga Amigos group that runs the big albergue! They informed us of several important changes, I posited a redesigned wall for the memorial plaques, everyone was in agreement that the park will be much improved over this summer.
That was 24 February. On 14 March we started shutting down the camino. On 20 March I sent some rough Memorial Grove architectual drawings (from a real architect!) to all the group members, but everyone agreed that Astorga Council was too embroiled in crisis matters to bother with a park just now.

And so it continues. Astorga is still very embroiled.
Poco a poco.
Spain is no place for people in a hurry.

That that is sad to hear. Everyone will need bushels of patience to deal with this pandemic - it will not obediently disappear when we feel like we're done with it.

That's super news. Once the dust settles, and they can think about parks again, it's great to know there is an amigo in a position to make decisions.
Thanks for reporting back!
