Friends of Aine Second Annual Gathering in Remembrance is June 12

The Friends of Aine second annual Gathering in Remembrance for anyone experiencing grief is set for 3-5 p.m. June 12 at Northeast Delta Dental Stadium in Manchester. The event will feature a keynote address by Paul Thayer, MA, MDiv, DM, clinical associate professor and program co-director for Child Life & Family-Centered Care at Boston University’s Wheelock College of Education and Human Development. There will be a variety of nonprofit collaborators in attendance, including Manchester Proud, SEE Science Center and Waypoint. The event also will include a remembrance tribute video on the Jumbotron, a children’s artwork exhibit, kids activities on the stadium’s concourse, a butterfly release and hot dog meals for children under 18. ‘The intention of this event is to publicly gather to honor our lost loved ones while working toward healing together,’ said Christine Phillips, co-founder, Friends of Aine. ‘The Gathering in Remembrance provides children and adults the community support and space to grieve – and reinforces that those grieving are not alone.’ Ticket prices for the Gathering in Remembrance are $5 for children, $10 for adults and $25 for a family package of four tickets. A free ballpark meal is included with every child ticket. While admission is available at the door, online registration is preferred at friendsofaine.com/remembrance.
