October 2022 Machias – Down East Community Hospital begun Breast Cancer Awareness month by wrapping the Machias bridge in pink lights! Now it is time to get together for an awareness celebration. We ask that you come join us on October 13 at 6pm as we gather for our Breast Cancer Awareness event at Bad Little Falls Park in Machias.
You are invited to a ceremony dedicated to the lives that have been touched by breast cancer and hear from our guest speaker, Holly Whitney. Holly is a breast cancer survivor who has a story to tell and a message to share. We will be honoring survivors and those who are no longer with us so come prepared to mention your loved ones or share your own message.
We will start the evening by meeting at the end of the Machias Bridge by Whitney’s Tri Town Marine. There, you can pick up your battery-operated candle and line up for our short walk to Bad Little Falls Park where there will be warm cider and snacks waiting.
We are asking our community to help us in our effort by bringing a little pink to their own neighborhood. There will be 100 pink light bulbs available at the ceremony so you can switch out your porch light with a pink one for the remainder of October. We hope to see you at the event!
