The Arc of Jackson County invites you to a special luminary remembrance service on Saturday, May 1 at Pinehaven Memorial Gardens. Several hundred candles will be placed throughout the gardens at all entrances, features and drives, completely illuminating the entire garden. These candles will be lit as dusk falls and the devotional service will begin at 7 p.m. Devotion and music for the service will be provided by Randy Sharpe of Calvary Baptist Church. Everyone is invited to attend and witness this beautiful transformation of the Memorial Gardens into a warmly glowing tribute to those who cannot be with us.
In addition to candles being placed all over the gardens, a candle may be placed on a loved one’s grave for a donation. All donations will go to the Arc of Jackson County. Arc board member Ron Crawford says that while the proceeds from this event are given to the Arc, the event is a way to give back to the community. No donation is too large or too small.
The Arc’s primary goal is to provide quality training and other services for adults with cognitive, intellectual, and other developmental disabilities. Services provided on site at The Arc of Jackson County include a Senior’s program for those for those 55+. You can learn more about the Arc on their website, www.arcofjacksoncoal.com.
Anyone wishing to make a donation may call the Arc at 256.259.1603, or donations may be mailed to them at The Arc of Jackson County, 180 Mack Morris Drive, Scottsboro, AL 35769.
In the event of bad weather, the event will be postponed to May 8.
