On Sunday, Dec. 9 at 7 p.m. at the South Abington Park, a local community candle lighting will be hosted in conjunction with other such events around the world do the same. In an act of remembrance of all children who have died at any time, of any age and from any cause, the third annual candle lighting is sponsored by local families and friends of those who have lost children.
The event is open to the community, whether you have lost a child yourself, or are the friend of someone who has died. It will be possible to show support by lighting a candle and participating in the program. The loss of any child is not just a loss for the immediate family, but a loss to the entire community. Participants should be at the park at 6:30 p.m. and bring a candle.
