A pair of gatherings are planned for Saturday, Sept. 24, to commemorate the recently deceased founder of local news sites Red Brick Town and Port City Wire: Lee Hernly.
Lee was a pioneer of local journalism in Alexandria, launching the popular hyperlocal blog Red Brick Town in 2006, which eventually grew into the local news site Port City Wire. Lee died suddenly in July from complications from a cerebral hemorrhage.
“We will celebrate Lee’s life on Saturday September 24th, 2022,” Lee’s brother Jay Hernly said. “Lee’s service will be at 11:30 a.m. at St. Paul’s Episcopal Church in Old Town Alexandria VA.”
Hernly said afterward, everyone is invited to join the family and friends at Union Street Public House for drinks and treats to chat about Lee and mingle.
“We will be there from 1-4 p.m. on Saturday, Sept. 24,” Jay wrote. “If you can’t make the service, please stop by and see us at Union Street Public House. We will probably be upstairs.”
In lieu of flowers, Jay said they are asking for donations to help Lee’s 14-year-old son Samuel. A GoFundMe has been set up to help secure Samuel’s future education.
“Lee was a generous, giving person who loved his family, loved his community, quiet at times, and could talk your ears off in politics, sports, etc,” Jay wrote. “He was certainly one of a kind.”
