Free Luminaries to Help Ferndalians Welcome New Year w/Lights and Hope
(Ferndale Beautification, Dec. 25, 2020)
Ferndale, MI – In a unified effort to usher out the year 2020 and all of its “challenges” and negativity and WELCOME the New Year 2021 in with all of its possibilities and potentials, The Ferndale Beautification Commission is organizing with the support of Ferndale DPW and sponsorship of local businesses, The Candle Wick Shoppe and Blumz by JRDesign, a city wide “Night of Lights and Hope, 2021”.
Through the efforts of the commission and the donations from The Candle Wick Shoppe and Blumz by JRDesign and assistance from Ferndale DPW, The Ferndale Beautification Commission has 200 luminary kits (8 luminaries per kit) will be offered free of charge to the first 250 families that apply and pick up the luminary kits. The families are asked to decorate their luminaries and write wishes, hopes or prayers for the New Year on them. These luminaries are to then be placed outside on the sidewalks on the evening of Dec. 31, 2020, at 6pm and the candles lit to signify our banishing of the old year and welcoming of the new.
Families are encouraged to share luminaries with their neighbors or encourage their neighbors to also participate by requesting a kit. The commission asks that the participating families take photos of their luminaries, children/participants decorating the luminaries, and the lighting of the luminaries and share them on social media with the hashtag #fbclightsofhope2021
