A Walk to Remember
November 2019 Events

Memorial Luminaria

Nov 23, 2019 04:00 PM to Nov 23, 2019 06:00 PM

This annual program is held in November, the Saturday before Thanksgiving and is a chance for all area residents who have experienced the death of a loved one to come together in remembrance. Families are encouraged to personalize and decorate their loved one’s luminary bag with photographs, poems, letters or any artistic decoration. The funeral home provides the bags, candles, markers, glue and stickers. At dusk the luminaries are placed outside around the funeral home followed by a memorial program honoring our loved ones.  Refreshments are provided throughout the evening. It is a very special time for reflection, sharing and remembrance.
