Carroll Hospice hosted its annual We Honor Veterans Breakfast today to pay tribute to veterans who served in all branches of the U.S. Armed Forces.
Carroll Hospice will remember fallen heroes with a luminaria lighting on Sunday, October 6.
On this day, luminaria—paper bags filled with tea lights—will be lined up outside of Dove House, Carroll Hospice’s inpatient facility, to honor individuals who have died who had served in our country’s military or were first responders.
“Our event was so moving last year that we wanted to include all of our community heroes to be honored and recognized,” says Kimberly Benson, Carroll Hospice’s volunteer coordinator. “This includes many of our patients who have passed as well as those who were taken in the line of duty to our country or community.”
The public is invited to attend the event and personalize a bag in honor of a loved one. The lighting will begin at 6 p.m. and a short service will take place at 7 p.m. at Dove House, 292 Stoner Avenue, Westminster.
For more information or to personalize a bag in honor of a loved one, please call 410-871-8000.
Carroll Hospice will remember those who died in service to our country on Sunday, September 30.
It is on this day that luminaries are lit as part of the Gold Star Luminary Initiative to remember those who died while serving in our country’s military.
