A Labyrinth for Sandy Edmiston

Junior Hi Youth Group from New Wilmington Presbyterian Church gathered stones for the labyrinth on June 13. Here they are selecting their "favorite stone" to be placed in the inner circle of the labyrinth. Rev. Lisa Hickman is their leader.
Friends and family of Sandy Edmiston built the labyrinth on July 15 by placing stones to line the path. The inner circle with "favorite stones" is ready to be set while excavation for the retaining wall is done by Dennis Salmon.

Anyone questioning community spirit and the outpouring of love would have benefited from an amazing accomplishment on Saturday, the 15th of July. By estimate, over 50 people moved over 100 tons of gravel and stones into a circular path that is called a labyrinth. This project, over 10 months in the planning, is a memorial to Sandra May Edmiston whose death on August 1, 2005 shocked the New Wilmington community and started an avalanche of love by those who knew her and many who only learned of her through word of mouth.
