Floating Lantern Pet Memorial 2018

For the Family, Animals

Join us for a personal and collective moment of remembrance, reflection, and gratitude for the pets who have enriched our lives. At check-in you will receive a 18" X 6" sheet of transparent paper that can be decorated with memories of your pet. When it is complete, volunteers will help you place your decorated paper into a lantern structure. Then whenever you are ready (physically and emotionally) a lighted path flanked by several hand-bell ringers will guide you to the release point on the beach. Volunteers will be at the release point to assist you. You are encouraged to stay as long as you like to watch the lanterns and visit with other participants. At approximately 9 PM, volunteers in kayaks will begin retrieving all lanterns from the lake.
