Our Precious Angels to hold annual candlelight vigil Dec. 11

The Our Precious Angels group will hold its annual candlelight vigil on Sunday, December 11, 2022, at 2:00 p.m. at the Precious Angels Memorial Garden site in Dubois County Park.

The candlelight vigil will last approximately one hour and will take place at the Our Precious Angels Memorial Garden site overlooking the lake near the south parking lot of the Dubois County 4-H fairgrounds. Anyone who has lost a child, as well as family and friends, are invited to participate in the annual event.

Our Precious Angels is a not-for-profit organization dedicated to assisting parents, friends, and family members dealing with the loss of a child. Dedicated in October of 2005, the memorial garden site was constructed and continues to be funded strictly through donations. Its purpose is to provide a peaceful, quiet, and serene place for family and friends to reflect on the memories of a lost loved one.

All maintenance and improvements to the memorial garden site depend on donations. If you are willing to help financially with this effort, you may drop off your donations to Springs Valley Bank and Trust. Be sure to tell them that it is for Our Precious Angel’s Maintenance Fund. You may also mail your donation check to Springs Valley Bank and Trust, c/o teller. PO Box 830, Jasper, Ind. 47547-0830. Be sure to write “Our Precious Angels” on the memo line.
