Last year’s lantern walk happened in the midst of the ice storm, postponed by two days and still icy, on December 23.
This year we’re hoping for snow. In the meantime, here’s what’s we’re working on:
:: A choir has formed, to sing us along our way
:: Julian drew another sweet lantern-holding child for us
:: We’ve hatched some plans for lantern-making, including a December workshop
:: Our friends at Extend-a-family have offered to help deliver flyers and even walk the route beforehand to make sure all the sidewalks are clear.
:: The Mount Hope Breithaupt Neighbourhood Association is looking into whether we can get the streetlights turned out. It will be a new moon, so the star-gazing could be wonderful.
Is there anything you would like to help with? Let us know.
