get involved!

“We must remember for those who have forgotten.”

We want to create an event that honors and preserves memories, not just for our family, but for many families.

We invite you to join us for the Hope Lap to kickoff the day as a community, and for The Longest Table at the end of the day to share a meal and a closing sunset ceremony.  In between we encourage and hope that you can host an activity of your choosing to honor your loved ones at your own homes or locations of your choice.
