Remembrance Garden Launch – 14th July 2007
The Gold Coast Drug Council Inc. proudly officially opened their ‘Remembrance Garden’ on July 14th with a dedication ceremony attended by parents and friends.
The day started perfectly; the sound of water trickled out of the fountain complimenting the soothing background music that welcomed parents and friends as they started to arrive. Guest speakers shared thoughts about what the garden meant to them, and the dedication plaque was unveiled by MP Christine Smith. Afterwards there was plenty of time for reflection over a cup of tea and home baked fresh scones.
The garden was built by both parents and staff of the community and today presents ‘a peaceful place to remember those we have lost’. It is a place to reflect on the extraordinarily wonderful memories of the people who are as firmly planted in our hearts as their plants are rooted in this soil.
The Gold Coast Drug Council Inc. would like to sincerely thank all who have contributed towards the creation of this peaceful space.
