Sweet Pea Project's Annual Remembrance Gathering
a community gathering in celebration of the short but precious lives of the babies we so desperately love and miss
There is beauty in the gathering together of similarly broken hearts. It is a salve, this time of remembrance. There is poetry in the ritual. And we think this year will be quite poetic.
On Saturday, October 15, Sweet Pea Project will hold our 7th Annual Remembrance Gathering in observance of National Remembrance Day. We invite you to gather at a different location- Lititz Springs Park- for a different kind of remembrance gathering. It will still be everything you've come to expect from a Sweet Pea Project community event. As always, your child, the love they left with you, and the love you carry for them always, will be our focal point. But there will be no balloons. Instead, we have dreamed up something that we hope will be incredibly beautiful, gentle, and meaningful. We will be writing short messages to our children on candles, and floating them down the flower-lined stream- illuminating the waters with the love that forever flows between us and our children.
Bobbi Carmitchell will be there playing her guitar once again, and as always, Grace Photos will be on hand to capture the event in photography. Thank you for trusting us with this new idea, and as always, thank you for allowing us to be a small part of your child's remembrance.
Lititz Springs Park is located at 18 N Broad St in Lititz. Guests should arrive at the park from 5:15-6 to ensure enough time to personalize their candles. Names will be read promptly at 6:15. The event is free, but registration is required. REGISTRATION WILL OPEN CLOSER TO THE EVENT. Please check back in late summer/early autumn for more details.
If you have any questions, please contact Nicole@sweetpeaproject.org. Thank you, and we hope to see you at the park on October 15.
