    Canyonlands Care Center held a ribbon cutting ceremony Oct. 16 officially dedicating their memorial garden. Administrator and CEO Kim Macfarlane offered a few remarks before cutting the ribbon, with assistance from Laici Schumway of the Moab Chamber of Commerce.

    The garden has been in the planning stages for over a year and a half. Money was raised through a series of events, including a garage sale, and through donations from organizations and individuals in the Moab community such as the Alpha Rho Chapter of Epsilon Sigma Alpha, Rod and JoAnn Petty, Jerry Schocknmyer, Misty Parsons, Julie Albina, and many others.

    “Due to everyone’s generosity the care center purchased bricks for all of the residents who have passed away and have reserves to purchase more bricks in the future. Canyonlands Care Center would especially like to recognize and thank Ray Hall of La Sal for generously providing his time to design, engineer and donate the memorial stone,” said a statement from the center.

    “This memorial garden is to forever remember those who have touched our lives and for whom Canyonlands Care Center has had the privilege to care for but are no longer with us. As this ribbon was cut, the care center hopes that it takes a long time to fill this space,” said Rick Lemus in a press release from the center.

    The community is invited to visit the memorial garden in the courtyard of the Canyonlands Care Center during normal business hours.
