A day for our community to reconnect, memorialize loved ones lost, honor our healthcare heroes, and spend time healing together
Since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic, Lancaster County lost over 1,000 lives. Every person we lost was a family member, friend, or neighbor. Someone that we knew dearly, someone that we loved, and someone that was lost too soon. We’ve all experienced loss – not only losing a loved one, but a job, a home, or a business.
We want to be there for those who long to reconnect, memorialize loved ones lost, honor our healthcare heroes, and spend time healing together – as the same strong community that came together when things were dark and hopeless. We want to continue to stand with our community by sharing stories and space so that we can move forward with abundant love, light, and support.
