Fairmount has designated November as Dementia Awareness Month, and has been holding special events and educational sessions throughout the month to promote awareness and understanding of dementia. The final event of the month is a Sky Lantern Release planned for Tuesday, November 26, at 5:15 p.m. Participants will meet in the Wheat Ridge Chapel, on the west side of Fairmount campus, at 4:30 p.m., for Lantern Release details. Designated release areas will be shared at that time. The public is cordially invited.
From 8:00 a.m.–4:30 p.m., the Wheat Ridge Chapel will be open for participants to come and write a favorite memory, the name of a loved one, a moment you cherish, or something for which you are thankful on a Sky Lantern. Lanterns may be pre-purchased for $1.00 by Friday, November 22, at the Wheat Ridge front desk or by calling 717.354.1800. A limited quantity will be available for purchase on the day of the release. Please plan to join us for this important event.
