YOU’RE INVITED to THE HOMELESS REMEMBRANCE PROJECT’s “Leaves of Remembrance” Dedication in BALLARD!!

Leaves of Remembrance Dedication & Reception
NOON Sunday, October 2nd
at Ballard Commons Park
(57th NW & NW 22nd)

Reception to follow at St. Luke’s Episcopal Church
(5710 22nd Ave NW)

For more than a decade, The Homeless Remembrance Project–a collaborative community effort facilitated by the homeless women of WHEEL–has created places of hope, healing, and beauty to honor and remember homeless people who’ve died in King County.  The Project has two parts:  A beautiful “Tree of Life” sculpture and gathering place at Victor Steinbrueck Park (north of Pike Place Market), and “Leaves of Remembrance,” with names, embedded in sidewalks throughout the City.

ALL ARE INVITED TO WITNESS AND CELEBRATE the October 2nd dedication of NINE new “Leaves of Remembrance” around Ballard Commons Park (where 34 Leaves already are).

We’re remembering these beloved community members:
Jerry Burns, Selvin Iscoa, James Noren, Jonathan Stanton, Myles Carroll, Ann Zachariasen, Donald “Donnie” Zachariasen, Gary Oaks, & Corey Bardwell.

The event starts with a NOON Ceremony at the Park. Then there’ll be a chance to share stories, memories, and refreshments at a Reception hosted at St Luke’s Episcopal Church, 5710—22nd Avenue NW. Please join us!
