Dear Compassionate Friend:

The Ottawa Chapter of The Compassionate Friends will once again participate in the annual Worldwide Candle Lighting Celebration on Sunday, December 13th at the Ron Kolbus Centre, 102 Greenview Avenue in Britannia. All parents, family and friends are welcome to participate in a non-denominational remembrance of those children who have left us too soon. Candles are lighted at 7:00 pm in each time zone, creating a 24-hour band of light around the globe … so that their light may always shine.

Please bring a free-standing picture of your child(ren) and arrive at 6:30 pm so that the program may commence promptly at 7:00 pm. Candles will be provided with refreshments to follow.

The attached poster provides more information. Please feel free to forward it to anyone you feel may wish to attend, or print and post it in your local community centre or place of worship.

There is no charge to participate in this Celebration. However to assist with planning, please visit our website to RSVP and indicate the number of family members who will be attending.

We look forward to seeing you at 6:30 pm on December 13th.

Best wishes,

Andy Bond
The Compassionate Friends, Ottawa Chapter
