Deadline nearing for spring memory blocks

Those wishing to honor and remember a loved one this spring with a memory block at the Perham Area Angel of Hope Memorial Park still have time to do so. The deadline for spring orders is next Wednesday, May 15.

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

The plan for this spring’s orders is to engrave the blocks the weekend prior to Memorial Day, weather permitting. If that is not possible, engravings will be done this summer.

The Perham Area Angel of Hope Memorial Park, located at the corner of 3rd Ave. and 6th Ave. N.E, was dedicated on Sept. 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.

Brochures about the park are available at the Perham Chamber of Commerce, or by contacting any one of the Angel of Hope committee members listed below.

The order form for a memory block is on the brochure. The cost for a memory block is $150.

Each block includes three lines of information. Order forms and any donations may be sent to Angel of Hope, P.O. Box 164, Perham, MN 56573.
