Ceremony Honoring Pregnancy & Infant Loss
October 16, 2016 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm
The Birth Circle will hold a ceremony at the Athens Community Center’s “Ribbon Tree,” planted near the playground in April of this year as a memorial to honor and celebrate the short lives of babies lost through miscarriage, stillbirth or in infancy. This year’s ceremony will include readings and a time of sharing, as well as time to tie a ribbon of your choice on the tree. The event is open to the public, and children are welcome to attend. If parents are unable to attend the ceremony but would like their child’s name or due date spoken, or a particular poem or prayer read, they can contact Claudia or Julia at firstname.lastname@example.org or 740-652-6262.
