On the evening of December 1st, and thanks to a team effort by FACT Bucks County, New Hope Celebrates, Martine’s RiverHouse, and Wessel+O’Connor Gallery (featuring special WORLD AIDS DAY cupcakes by James Rogers of Cakes Done Simple), with thoughtful words from The Rev Michael Ruk of St. Philip’s Episcopal Church, our community was once again brought together to remember our friends and family members with HIV~AIDS that have left us, are still living with the disease, and in our hope for a cure.
Over 30 participants were in attendance. At Ferry Landing Park in New Hope, we were kept warm with hot apple cider from Martine’s, candles were lit and luminaries were set aloft over the Delaware River in our local observance of this special day. Afterwards there was a candlelight walk over the bridge to Wessel+O’Connor Gallery on Main Street in Lambertville for a wine and cheese reception (with red velvet cupcakes) and a special art showing. A BIG FACT THANK YOU to everyone in attendance and to all who made this such a memorable evening. Please join us next year on December 1, 2014
