Flin Flons Anglican Parish is offering memory candles for a 13th holiday season. The committee’s Yvonne Fawcett explains the candles appear in the community just before Christmas. She explains the purpose of the memory candle is to remember loved ones prior to the hustle and bustle of the season. Candles can be placed at any of the cemeteries in Flin Flon, Creighton, Denare Beach including columbarium’s or you can take your candle home and light it whenever you want. She says this is the fourth year that they have placed candles road side at the Cranberry Portage cemetery. She notes mass lighting is scheduled to take place at all cemeteries on Sunday November 18th with the exception of Cranberry Portage which will be lit on Saturday the 17th weather permitting.
Fawcett adds if winds are more than 10 kilometers an hour the candles cannot be lit and it 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 Saturday or at Big Dipper, Candy Bar, Northern Rainbows End or call Yvonne at 204-687-7463.
