Joining Jina Remebrance Walk

 

Lamoine Consolidated School’s Physical Education teacher, Mrs Patti Haslam, would like to invite Lamoine residents to the 11th annual “Joining for Jina” Remembrance Walk on Monday, June 20 at 7:00 pm at the Lamoine State Park.  Jina 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 and community members organized events to raise enough money to renovate the Lamoine Consolidated School Gym, establish a $100,000 scholarship fund for the University of Maine Animal Science program (that to date has helped eight Maine resident college students) and contribute $25,000 towards 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 time for socializing with old and new friends, will wrap up the memorial event.
