“Joining For Jina” Remembrance Walk Set

Family, friends, and acquaintances of Jina Haslam and her family are invited to the 8th annual “Joining For Jina” remembrance walk on Thursday, June 20 at 7:00 pm at the Lamoine State Park. Jina, the daughter of Patti Haslam and the late Bobby Haslam, was tragically killed in a car/bike accident near her home in Lamoine on June 20, 2005, six days after her eighth grade graduation. Since that time her family has organized events to raise enough money to renovate the Lamoine Consolidaated School Gym, establish a $100,000 scholarship fund for the University of Maine Animal Science program and aid in the gym roof renovations of the James Russell Wiggins YMCA.

The procession will start at the parking lot, accompanied by police and fire department escort, and traverse a 2 mile round trip to Lamoine Beach and back to the Park. A brief stop will be made at the memorial site where Jina's accident occurred and where flowers may be placed. A bonfire, complete with the fixings for s'mores, and the sharing of fond memories, will wrap up the memorial event.
