Many thanks to all who attended Bellefontaine’s Inaugural Memorial Lantern Glow event Sunday night. Our Wildwood Valley Gardens twinkled with the many luminaries decorated, dedicated and lit by our approximately 70 attendees, in addition to the hundreds lit representing all those interred in Bellefontaine in the past two years. It was an evening of reflection and remembrance that we hope was a beautiful and comforting experience for Bellefontaine families and the community. A very special thank you to the wonderful volunteers who helped in putting this evening together for our families.

For all those who asked about our plans for the luminary bags- we have collected them all and will start a tradition of burying them together each year, marked by a planting.

You may see more photos of the event on our Wildwood Valley page here.
