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 May 21st dedication of FIVE new “Leaves of Remembrance” around Ballard Commons Park (where 43 Leaves already are; see reverse for list of previously-dedicated Leaves). 

 We’re remembering these beloved community members:
Alicia Nickerson, Jan “Jon” Andersson, Tanya Hedington,
Hubert “Buzz” Chevara, and Marc Cahill

 Please visit pretty soon for stories and photos!

 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!
