Fall orders being taken for Angel of Hope memory blocks

It’s nearly time for fall orders to be submitted for new memory blocks at the Perham Area Angel of Hope Memorial Park.

The order deadline is Tuesday, Oct. 1. New blocks are added to the walls at the park.

Located at the corner of 3rd Ave. N.E. and 6th Ave. N.E., the park was dedicated on September 24, 2004. The idea for the park was born from the deepest grief any parent, sibling, grandparent, extended family or friend will ever feel, the death of a child.

The names on the memory walls are the names of children of all ages.

The park is a special place to grieve, hope and heal; a place to remember and celebrate the lives of children.

New memory blocks are added to the walls at the park every spring and fall.

Brochures about the park are available at the Perham Area Chamber of Commerce, or from anyone on the Angel of Hope committee. An order form for a memory block is on the brochure. The cost of a memory block is $150. Each block includes three lines of information.
