The late Sid Yudain, founding father of Roll Call, will be memorialized at 11 a.m. Saturday at a service in the Holeman Lounge of the National Press Club (529 14th St. NW).

Lael Yudain told HOH the hourlong service would be punctuated by tributes from those closest to her politically connected spouse, a roster that includes their son, Raymond Yudain, and political satirists/comedy pianists Dan Ruskin and Mark Russell, as well as other family members and friends.

The facility can accommodate as many as 150 guests, but Lael Yudain hinted that well-wishers would not be turned away.

“If it’s standing room only, that’s OK with us,” she said.

The event will be followed by an on-site reception.

No word yet on when the actual burial will take place. “We’re still waiting to hear back from Arlington Cemetery,” Lael Yudain said.
