In November We Remember

On Sunday November 2nd 2014 Galway East Life Support (GELS) will be hosting a community commemorative walk In memory of all those that we have lost.

We are going to honour the lives of all those we have lost over the years by having a memorial walk around Ballinasloe, where we can all meet up, go for a nice short walk, approx. 25 minutes, and talk in memory of our loved ones.  This is an open invitation event for the community and we will encourage everybody to join us…. Young and old, individuals, couples and families

The day will consist of registration taking place in Gullanes Hotel from 1pm onwards. At 2pm we will have a candle lighting ceremony and at 2:20pm the walk will commence. This will be a short walk around Ballinasloe and will take about 25 minutes to complete. The walk will finish at Gullanes Hotel where we will have our closing ceremony followed by light refreshments (Tea and Coffee).

There is a Registration fee of €5 with all proceeds going to the charitable bereavement group, The Bethany Group. The Bethany Group deal with bereavement across the parish, offering comfort and support in a number of ways such as one to one meeting, group session and home visits.

So come along and bring your family, friends and neighbours to walk and talk, and In November, WE Remember those that we miss.

We would strongly advise people who wish to attend to be wary of the weather conditions and ensure that they dress accordingly
