Flin Flon’s Anglican parish is offering memory candles for an 11th holiday season. The committee’s Yvonne Fawcett explains the candles appear in the community just before Christmas with the purpose 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 area including the columbarium or you can take your candles home and light them whenever you want. She adds this is the second year they will place candles roadside at the Cranberry Portage cemetery.
The candles are ten dollars and can be purchased at the craft shows at the Creighton Community Hall and Flin Flon Community Hall tomorrow from ten to four or at Nasselquists, Big Dipper, Candy Bar, Northern Rainbows End or call Yvonne at 687-7463. Fawcett adds there will be a mass lighting at all cemeteries Saturday, November 20th with the exception of Cranberry Portage which will be on the 19th weather permitting with the best time for viewing at dusk.
