3rd Annual Fire of Hope – at Harbor Park

December 31, 2018 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm EST

Join us to ring in the New Year by joining our voices and positive intentions at our Fire of Hope, held alongside the CT river.
The program starts with drumming and gongs from Andrew Prue at 1 pm. Anne-Marie McEwen (Buttonwood executive director) welcomes all and offers insightful words from Annaita Gandhy about what we’ll face in 2019.
We’ll have the opportunity to write down all our “Burdens” from the past, and place them in our burden bag which will be burned in a short ceremony, to be followed by a burning of our positive intentions for the future.
HannaH’s Field, a local inspiring band, will provide some music and lead us in singing some songs like Imagine and Let it Be by the Beatles.
Lou Sorrentino will also lead us in a song, “We Are One”.
It’s a heartwarming time together where we fill each other with love and hope. Join us to be renewed and ready for 2019!
