Lone Fir Twilight Heritage Celebration

July 22, 2010

Story by Sarah Wigginton

This Saturday, July 24, Nick will be taking part in a very special evening at the Lone Fir Pioneer Cemetery.

Metro Regional Parks and Greenspace have put together the Lone Fir Twilight Heritage Celebration to honor this beautiful and historic 30-acre arboretum in the heart of Southeast Portland.

The evening's schedule of events includes a Buddhist blessing of the Lone Fir tree, a performance by the Emmanuel Temple Gospel Choir, live music by artists Matt Sheehy and Leigh Marble, the dedication of three trees by Commissioner Nick Fish, and two documentary screenings (“Come Together Home” by Ivy Lin and “For the Living and the Dead” by three St. Mary’s Academy students.)

Bring a picnic dinner and come enjoy all that Lone Fir has to offer with your family and friends. The evening’s festivities will begin at 6:00p.m. and end around 10:30p.m. Admission is free for everyone.

We hope to see you there!
