The Cancer Memorial Park Foundation is hosting its First Annual Candle Lighting Fall Ceremony on Sunday, Nov. 2 at 6:30 p.m. The event will begin at the Cancer Memorial Park on the square in Bowling Green where the candles will be lit. A procession will then move to the First Presbyterian Church where the memorial service will be held. Individuals are also welcome to go straight to the church to welcome the procession.
As part of the service, all names engraved in the park will be read aloud in addition to guest speakers. This year’s event happens to fall on All Soul’s Day which is defined as a day of remembering those who have passed on. Everyone is invited to attend regardless if you are fighting cancer, have a loved one fighting, have lost a loved one or are there to simply offer support.
Cancer Memorial Park Foundation President Karen Daffron said the foundation hopes to make this an annual event that will continue to grow. In case of inclement weather the entire service will be held at the church. If you need additional information or have any questions please contact Daffron at 324-3740 ext. 9602 or at email@example.com.
