May 22, 2019 3:32 p.m.

Lincolnland Hospice of Sarah Bush Lincoln is hosting its 20th annual Memory Day, a program geared toward children who have experienced the death of a loved one.

Memory Day, which is geared for children five to 15 years old, is set for 10 am, Saturday, June 15, in the Lumpkin Family Center for Health Education (Entrance C) at Sarah Bush Lincoln.

Memory Day will focus on cherished memories children have of special people they have lost in their lives, as well as pay tribute to them. As part of the event, children will plant flowers, participate in group activities focusing on grief, including a release of doves. Light refreshments will be served.
