Meg's Home of the Innocents sculpture dedication

There was a Preview Party on the day after the sculpture installation, that was shown on the last post. Sharon Receveur hosted it at her house, and that would be a blog posting unto itself (except that we came away from it without pictures to share). Great food and great company, what else can you say - except that it's something that I'll remember the rest of my life.

The unveiling and dedication of Meg's Home of the Innocents Children's Memorial markers was scheduled on Sunday, November 1 at 2 p.m. The event began with a welcome from sharon Receveur (on the left), and then remarks by Home of the Innocents CEO Gordon Brown. This photo includes Linda Speed, who was one of the main forces in the project, as well.

Ciaran Brown played Sister Emily cooper alongside 4 child actors, in a production called "Remember Me".

There was an unveiling of a historical marker at the site by Becky Riddle of the Kentucky Historical Society.

Prayers and blessings were led by Rabbi Stanley Miles of Temple Shalom and Bishop Reed (both on right of photo). There was a Choral performance by the Ballard High School Madrigal Singers. Then, Sharon presented the artist, Meg white, who spoke a few words.

The sculpture was unveiled...

...and the doves released!
