Luminaries

This year was the third anniversary of the luminary display ~ a 'new' tradition at Empire Grove. The luminaries are purchased by individuals and the money goes to a worthy cause. This year's cause was ALS. I don't know how many luminaries circled the Grove, but over $800 was raised for the ALS Foundation. It was a very impressive display. At dusk the street lights were turned off and we walked around the circle by the light of the luminaries. Dad lead the way in his wheelchair. It was a beautiful display for a very good cause.

What a wonderful idea. Thank you for choosing to support those with ALS. I run an ALS Support Group here in Vermont.
