We warmly invite you to witness and celebrate when we dedicate more “Leaves of Remembrance” for those we’ve loved and lost! Starting at 2 PM Tuesday, August 16th, we’ll be dedicating two more Leaf installations, in front of Angeline’s/Opportunity Place, and also in front of the Family and Adult Service Center (FASC), on 3rd Avenue between Lenora and Virginia Streets.

At 2 PM we’ll do brief Rituals at both Leaf Locations, and then have a Tea Party/Reception in the Jennings Room of Opportunity Place (2024 Third Ave), with light refreshments, afterwards, until 4 PM.

Every person matters. The folks we’re remembering with these new sets of Leaves all made a mark on our community, and all were important. They are (at Angeline’s/Opportunity Place): Sarah Sullivan, April Beachem, Ella Lewis, Annette Anderson, Michelle Jackson, Sharon Kilgore, Melody Rayl, Dinah Lane, Robin Langston, Renee Williams, Irene Giguerre, Tonya “Sonshine” Smith, Delores Beamon, Tessie Comeslast, and Dinetta Williams. At FASC: Robert Teubner, Steven Shropshire, Bud Sears, Timothy Dewitt, Bokary Loum, Thomas Fribley, Brian Reitan, Paul Corgatelli, Hilary Blue, Jeremy Campbell, and Jose Marcos Lucio.

If you have memories or stories to share about these beloved community members, please contact the Homeless Remembrance Project Committee at (206) 956-0334 or email wheelorg@yahoo.com.
