April 28th each year is the worldwide Worker’s Memorial Day. This is new to me as it may be to you. Susan Beary asked Lovilia city council if we could have a memorial walk and service and they agreed.
This day is to remember all workers who have died on the job or contracted a chronic illness from exposure to something harmful at the work site. If you have someone you want remembered, please call Susan at 641-946-7952. We invite everyone who wishes to honor these workers to come walk with us.
We will meet at the Lovilia Community Building at 6:45 p.m. At 7 p.m. we will walk from the building to E Ave. South (main street) and proceed South to the Catholic Church. Then we will turn left and walk to F Ave. (back street). Next turn and go North to the car wash where we turn left and go two blocks which returns us to the community building.
Once there we will pass out and light candles to hold in memory of those who died or were injured. The names and circumstances of the death or illness will be read. We will also include groups who died that we have no names for from many different work settings.
We will conclude with prayer for these people to rest in eternal peace and for us the living to continue to work for safe and healthy work places for all.
Mark your Calendar for June 8th, Saturday from 8 a.m.-10 a.m.
This will be a promotion day for the encouragement of all households in Lovilia and the rural area to come and recycle. We will have a surprise thank you item for each child who brings something to recycle and for each adult.
See you that day at the recycle trailer in Lovilia. If you have questions, call Susan Beary at 641-946-7952.
Lovilia city records show 226 households in Lovilia. How many currently recycle? Under 50. A goal to reach of 100 participating households on this day would be a proud day to be sure.
Would you help us reach this goal? If you need to see the list of what you can recycle, click back on the blog to the one posted on Jan. 29, 2013 and all is listed there. See you June 8th at the trailer!!
