POMC 2012 National Day of Remembrance
On Tuesday, September 25, 2012 POMC recognized the National Day of Remembrance to Honor Murdered Victims at Mt. View Cemetery. There was music, speakers, special tributes, a butterfly release, and a barbecue lunch. This year was a special event as it marked the ground breaking of the Parents of Murdered Children Memorial Garden.
The Greater Portland Area Chapter of POMC is in the process of building their long awaited, and much deserved, memorial. This will be the eighth memorial for homicide victims in the United States and the only one in the Northwest.
The organization is still actively fundraising and accepting donations to help pay for engraving of names. To included the name of a homicide victim on the memorial wall, or for more information, you may contact Chapter Leader, Mary Elledge at 503-656-8039 or http://www.pomc.com/portland/index.htm
