Sweet Pea Project's Annual Remembrance Gathering
an eco-friendly balloon release in celebration of the short but precious lives of the babies we so desperately love and miss
Thank you to everyone who joined us at the park on Tuesday for an evening of
love and remembrance. It was an honor to share those moments with you.
We hope to see you there again next year on Wednesday, October 15, 2014!
In the meantime...

October 15th is National Remembrance Day for families who have experienced the death of a baby. In observance of this day, and in honor of all the babies that are so deeply loved and missed, Sweet Pea Project is holding its 3rd Annual Remembrance Gathering. The event will take place in the grassy field in front of the amphitheater at Long's Park in Lancaster, Pennsylvania.
Sweet Pea Project volunteers will be handing out balloons from 5pm until 5:45pm and the release will take place promptly at 6pm. Come early to ensure time to personalize your balloon. Compostable seed paper will be provided for you to write a small note to your child. The notes will be inserted into the balloons so that when the balloon bursts, the notes will be reclaimed by the earth and wildflowers will sprout out of your love letter to your child.
We have taken precautions to make sure that this is an eco-friendly event. For this reason we must insist that you do not bring your own balloons. Biodegradable sap-based balloons, all natural vegetable dyed raffia and compostable seed paper will be provided.
Singer/songwriter Bobbi Carmitchell will once again be providing beautiful musical accompaniment to our evening. She has traveled all across the country and even played for presidents, but she always makes time to volunteer her talents for Sweet Pea Project in honor of our children. We are so grateful for her compassion. Please check out her website at www.bobbicarmitchellmusic.com.
