North Tonawanda residents Marybeth Kupiec and Paula Benedyczak, in conjunction with the Office of Mayor Austin Tylec, invite the public to gather at the Children’s Remembrance Garden (216 Payne Ave.) June 5 for an evening of prayer, music and reflection in remembrance of the lives lost from recent tragedies throughout the nation.
Kupiec, who assisted in the creation of the Children’s Remembrance Garden, said, “During these challenging and stressful days, we’re invited to pause in prayer and reflection for ourselves, our community, our city, our country and our world.”
Organizers said, “This will be an opportunity to come together as a community now more than ever, to help bring healing and renewal.”
This event is open to the public and will take place from 7-8 p.m. Sunday. Participants are welcome to bring a blanket or chair, and are asked to bring toiletries or nonperishable goods for donations to the Buffalo community.
Pastor Blaine Jorg will be officiating, with vocal and instrumental performers adding to the event.
In case of inclement weather, this event will be moved to St. Matthew’s Lutheran Church, 875 Eggert Drive.
