Thank you Ex Libris

Apologies to two donors of silent auction items for the Marblehead Peninsula Library Committee Fundraiser, Good Librations on Sept. 7th. It has come to our attention that we missed placing Anchors Away Marina and Sun City Tanning Center on the list. So, belated thanks to these two businesses!

Compassionate Friends

A child’s death is not what we expect from life’s natural course of events. We assume that children outlive their parents and when this unthinkable tragedy occurs, it is hard to imagine that anything can make a family whole again or allow us to move forward with our lives. 

A little over a year ago we imagined a place of solitude, a place to reflect and a place to remember our children. We wanted to create a place to soften the sadness of visitors who needed a special place to honor the memory of their child. Our dreams came true last year when we were granted permission to build such a place at the southwest corner of Lakeview Park. Our Children’s Memorial became a reality.
