On Wednesday, the public is invited to remember Sen. Paul Wellstone in the first of three memorial events this fall.

The senator and seven others, including his wife and daughter, died in a plane crash on Oct. 25, 2002.

Friends, family, and supporters plan to honor their lives and legacy Wednesday at Macalester College. Doors open at 6 p.m.

There will be another event on the 10-year anniversary in Eveleth, Minn., which is the site of the plane crash. A third event will take place in November in Washington, D.C.
