Remembering lost loved ones in Reedville

Posted on Wednesday, November 30, 2016 at 11:16 am

Reedville GazeboOn Sunday afternoon, December 4 at 4:00 p.m., a memorial gathering will be held at Bethany United Methodist Church on Main Street in Reedville to remember loved ones who we have lost since December, 2015. We will be honoring all those who died from Reedville and all those who had a Reedville connection. Angel ornaments with the name of the lost loved one will be hung from the Christmas tree in the church. When the name of the loved one is called, a relative or friend of the loved one will be asked to come forth and hang the ornament on the tree. A few days later, the ornaments will be moved to the gazebo Christmas tree where they will be on display through the holidays. Several members of the Reedville Festival Chorale will perform at the gathering. At the conclusion of the program, David Hershiser will play “Amazing Grace” on the bagpipes. As of this week, we have the names of 67 loved ones who will be honored.

It is our hope that this 3rd memorial gathering will be well attended as a way of remembering those lost since December, 2015. The public is invited to attend.
