COMMUNITY BRIEFS – July 13, 2021


A Walk to Remember on July 22

July is annually recognized as Bereaved Parents Awareness Month, a month dedicated to raising awareness of the support necessary when one endures the loss of a child. This month is a time for supporting our friends and loved ones who have experienced child loss, no matter the amount of years that have gone by.

The Group “We Remember Them CNMI” will be hosting a “Walk to Remember” on Thursday, July 22, at 5pm. We will meet at the pavilion next to The Shack Restaurant. Water will be provided. Please feel free to bring a picture of your child.
For details, please call or text Donna Krum at 783-1900. (PR)
