Flin Flon’s Anglican Parish is offering memory candles for a 12th holiday season. The committee’s Yvonne Fawcett explains the candles appear in the community just before Christmas and the purpose of the candles is to remember loved ones prior to the hustle and bustle of the season. She says candles can be placed at any of the cemeteries in the Flin Flon, Creighton, Denare Beach are including columbariums or you can take them home and light them whenever you want and this is the third year they will place candles roadside at the Cranberry cemetery. Fawcett notes mass lighting is scheduled to take place at all cemeteries on Sunday, November 19th with the exception of Cranberry Portage which will be on Saturday the 18th weather permitting.
Fawcett adds if winds are more than 10 kilometers an hour the candles cannot be lit and lighting will take place on another day. Check CFAR and Facebook for updates. The candles are ten dollars each and can be ordered at the craft shows at the Flin Flon and Creighton Community Halls tomorrow or at Nasselquists, Big Dipper, Candy Bar, Northern Rainbows End or call Yvonne at 204-687-7463.
