To honor and commemorate the children of Newtown, Conn., an informal community ceremony is planned for Friday evening December 21 at 5 p.m. near the Big Spring Park Lighthouse (at the north end of the Downtown Forty-Seven Tinsel Trail). The community is invited. Part of the ceremony will include the lighting of candles. Individuals may bring a candle if desired. Some candles will be provided.

A tree along the Tinsel Trail nearby has been designated for those who wish to contribute a decoration which symbolically represents children. For safety, a basket is provided so that selected volunteers can place the ornaments on the tree.

This event is co-sponsored by Beloved Community Alabama and the Huntsville Area Inclusive Community Initiative.
