Light Up a Life 2021

Thursday, December 9, 2021 6:00pm

For 39 years, Care Partners has provided exceptional end-of-life care and celebrated those who have passed away in our annual Light Up A Life event.  In 2022 the event will once again be held online.  As in prior years, we’ll have music from the Portland Symphonic Girlchoir, poetry, a candle lighting ceremony and reading of names.  Everyone is welcome to join, and names of those to be read can be submitted regardless of whether they were on our service or the year that they passed.  Since it has ben difficult for people to gather for memorials during this pandemic year, we are especially encouraging anyone in the community to join us.
