We are so excited to again host a Celebration for families to remember and acknowledge their angels. We’ve also invited caregivers and donors, so everyone can reconnect and share memories.
Last year’s silent auction was a huge success, so we’ll repeat that opportunity.
We’ve sent invitations to those whose addresses we currently have on file or on line. If you haven’t received one and wish to do so, please email Nancy at Napaara@aol.com or text 612-986-3737. Auction items are appreciated, as are services and/or food products.
Our event goes from noon to 4PM on August 20, 2017. The program will start with sign-in (name cards will indicate who you are, with the name of your angel baby, or your role as caretaker or donor or friends etc). We will suggest that people browse the auction area, then enjoy a short program at around 12:45P or 1 PM. The artist responsible for many of the ceramic angels placed throughout the gardens will grace us with her presence, and will share the stories of her journey via her losses and where all of this has led her. She’s our partner here, and her support, encouragement and love are mirrored in every single memorial she’s created. Come say hi to Nina Guertin of 4angelscreations!
We’ll end the program with asking people to share their stories, if they wish. Poetry or readings are welcomed, so bring your thoughts on paper to share. We also welcome any plaques, garden artifacts and statues, or anything that you might want to contribute to our Loss Community.
Light refreshments will be provided.
We invite you to bring a lawn blanket or lawn chairs. We have some but found many people lingering on the lawns around the gardens last year~we want you comfortable!
Although this is our property, the gardens are yours. We are simply your caretakers.
With blessings and love, Nancy and Tom
