The dedication ceremony will on Valentine’s Day will include the planting of a large magnolia tree, music, multi-denominational prayers, words of remembrance and the reading of 100 names of local individuals who succumbed to this disease. The event is free and open to the public.
For the donation of $200, a tree will stand strong in memory of those gone too soon. See the location for the future memorial, a bridge uniting those lost and those who remember.
