We’re almost at a
point where there are no words anymore … words of condolence, of prayer, of
sympathies … and yes, even anger when we look at the tragedy in Nova
Scotia. I know as a Community our hearts
go out to everyone there as we know what it is like to be a part of a very
small, tight-knit community.
So, today was to be the launch day of a Community Project. And as I pondered things, it perhaps seems even more significant that we introduce it.
This is a new exhibit, which we will be creating outside and I’m asking for your help to build…
A Garden of Strength and Hope
This garden will include two of our famous wooden statues. The statues of Josephine and Joseph are being moved from the former Algonquin Nursing Home (ANH) location to Explorer’s Point. It will be a garden of reflection, a dedication to our front-line workers and our community as a whole.
So, I need your help, because this will be a rock garden! And I’d like as many people as possible to participate.
Include the date or #2020 on the rock
What represents Strength and Hope to you?
Is there a particular person you would like to do a memory rock for?
A kindness rock?
These are your dedication rocks, so make them personal!
Include a name if you like
Check out the Garden of Strength and Hope page on this website for tips, tricks, and inspiration.
So, where do we go from here?
Step 1 : Find your rock(s) and unleash your creative skills!
Step 2: In these restricted times, take a picture of your creation and share it with
Sheri Wabie for the Mattawa Neighbourhood Cheer Facebook page
Teri Burton for the Friends of ANH Facebook page
Step 3: Keep the rocks, stay tuned to this website!
Step 4: When we are ready to come together as a community to dedicate the garden, you will be able to come and add your Rocks of Strength and Hope to our Garden.
