Nick Harder Update

A memorial service for Orange County Register columnist Nick Harder will be held at 3:30 p.m. Aug. 16 at Mount of Olives Lutheran Church in Mission Viejo, 24772 Chrisanta Drive. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made in his name to The ROCK Youth Center, 24772 Chrisanta Drive, Mission Viejo, CA 92691.

Nick, a Vietnam War POW who chewed his way out of a bamboo cage, was a bright spot at the paper who always had something nice to say to his colleagues. He will be missed.
