The Norwood Circle of Hope Foundation invites you to help light up the Circle of Hope by purchasing a luminary to be lit on Saturday evening, Dec. 3, on the Town Common.
Continuing a Norwood tradition begun 11 years ago, the members of the Circle of Hope Foundation call the luminaries are a symbol of Life, Hope, the Season, and Remembrance of others.
Luminaries can be purchased for $5 each from any Foundation board member, by calling 781-762-3549, or by mailing your check and messages to The Circle of Hope Foundation, 24 Myrtle Street, Norwood MA 02062. The purchaser can designate a short message of life, hope, the season or remembrance to be written on their luminary. The candles will be lit beginning at 5 p.m. and the Foundation members hope that residents and friends will come out and be a part of the evening’s event.
This year’s event includes a special performance by the NHS Alumni Choir at 6 p.m. So plan to stop by and enjoy the beauty of the light while music of the season fills the Norwood Town Common.
The Norwood Circle of Hope Foundation is a non-profit organization established to support Norwood residents who need assistance due to a catastrophic medical occurrence. Last year the foundation gave more than $35,000 to Norwood residents in need of assistance. The foundation was established in 1998 in memory of Michelle Kennedy, a young Norwood resident, who suffered with leukemia. During Michelle's battle the entire Norwood community, many of whom did not know Michelle, joined together and it is in that spirit that the Norwood Circle of Hope Foundation plans to continue.
For more information or to purchase luminary please call 781-762-3549.
