‘Candlelight evening of Memories’ at the Wales Home
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.
