In relation the Fermoy Community Health Project I am delighted to say that a significant phase of our community garden development has taken place over the summer months and I know some of you have already seen the wonderful transformation. With this in mind we have planned our first event for the community garden, called the 'Lights of Love Remembrance Tree' event. An open invitation is issued to attend this event on Sunday the 4th December.
Below is some information on the event. I would be grateful if you would share this information and the poster via email, Facebook or the good old fashioned way 'verbally' over the coming days with members of your group, colleagues, friends and family. It is our intention to make this an annual event, which will also serve as a fundraising source for the ongoing development and maintenance of our beautiful community garden.
The ‘Lights of Love’ tree will be lit at a special community event in the Community Garden of Fermoy Community Resource Centre on Sunday December 4th. You can remember a loved one by making a €5 donation and for each light sponsored you will receive a unique 'Lights of Love' Christmas remembrance card and you are also invited to create a named dedication for your loved one and place it in our special memory frame. Sponsorship of lights will be available in the Cahill Room of the Resource Centre from 5 to 6pm on the day.
Refreshments will be served in the kitchen of the Resource Centre to compliment the music and reflection.
All monies raised will go directly toward the fund for the completion of the Community Garden.
We hope the event will provide a warm space during the festive season to cherish the memories of our loved ones as the lights continually shine over the Christmas season and into the New Year.
