‘Can­dle­light evening of Mem­o­ries’ at the Wales Home

Stanstead Journal - - FORUM -

The Wales Home Foun­da­tion will be hold­ing its third an­nual ‘Can­dle­light Evening of Mem­o­ries’ on Oc­to­ber 17th, 7:00 pm, in the Wales Home liv­ing room. Any­one is wel­come to buy a can­dle for a do­na­tion of $10 or more to be lit in the mem­ory of a loved one dur­ing the evening. The names of all the peo­ple be­ing com­mem­o­rated will also be read out and live mu­sic will be pro­vided by Town­ships song­ster, Matthew McCully. Those be­ing com­mem­o­rated do not need to have been a Wales Home res­i­dent.

With the money raised from the fundraiser, the Foun­da­tion would like to fi­nance a ‘Sky fac­tory im­age’ to in­stall in the fa­cil­ity. Th­ese images of nat­u­ral skies have proven to have ben­e­fi­cial prop­er­ties for peo­ple who spend much of their time in­doors. In 2012, 540 can­dles were sold and med­i­cal equip­ment was pur­chased. 568 can­dles were sold in 2013 which al­lowed the Foun­da­tion to pur­chase el­e­va­tor door wrap­ping, another ther­a­peu­tic in­no­va­tion, for Nor­ton 1, Nor­ton 2, and Nor­ton 3.

For more in­for­ma­tion con­tact Re­becca Tay­lor at the Wales Home at 819 826-3266.
