Now I Lay Me Down to Sleep Remembrance Walk Proposed in Stillwater

The Stillwater City Council will consider approval of a new event next month for families who have lost babies.

Heather Lombardo is proposing the Now I Lay Me Down to Sleep Remembrance Walk on Saturday, Sept. 9 in Lowell Park.

Now I Lay Me Down to Sleep is a national organization that provides heirloom portraits to families that have lost babies.

The day will begin with a ceremony that includes a reading of the infants names, a guest speaker a balloon release and live music. Following the ceremony the remembrance walk will take place with pictures of the babies along the portion of the 1-mile route in Lowell Park.

The walk will begin at the gazebo in Lowell Park and go under the bridge along Sam Bloomer Way, which will be blocked off for the event. Walkers will turn around at Nelson Street and walk the pathway along the river to Mulberry Point then onto the trail up to the trailhead parking lot where they turn and head back on Main Street to Lowell Park.

City staff and the Parks and Recreation Commission recommends the council approve the event.
