Angel of Hope memorial block deadline May 10

The Perham Area Angel of Hope Memorial Park, located at the corner of 3rd Ave & 6th Ave. NE, 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 our child, your child, too many children. The names on the Memory Walls are the names of children of all ages. It is a special place to grieve, hope, and heal. A place to remember and celebrate the lives of our children.

Each Spring and Fall, new memory blocks are added to the walls at the Park. It is time for the Spring orders to be sent in. The order deadline is May 10. Brochures are available at the Chamber of Commerce, or from anyone on the committee. The order form for a memory block is on the Brochure. The cost for a memory block is $200. Each block includes three lines of information.

Volunteers are always welcome to help with gardening, and has the skills necessary, to keep the flower gardens at the Park cleaned up, to help with cleanup of the beds in the fall, snow removal in the winter months and with the Annual Candlelight Vigil held every Dec. 6 at 7 p.m.

If more information is needed, please contact Brenda Thompson at (218) 234-1456, email or Kim Nelson, (218) 367-3117.

Memory Block order forms and any donations, can be sent to Angel of Hope, P.O.Box 164, Perham, MN 56573. Checks can be made out to West Central Initiative, with Angel of Hope written on the memo line.

The Angel of Hope Committee would like to thank everyone in the Perham Lakes Area, for their ongoing support of the Angel of Hope Memorial Park.
