Deary Memorial Garden Dedication

May 9, 2019
Deary Memorial Garden Dedication
Thursday, May 9
5:30 p.m.
DKH’s Schneider Center | 309 Pomfret Street, Putnam (across from the Day Kimball Hospital campus)

Day Kimball Healthcare invites the community to a garden dedication ceremony to celebrate the life of DKH’s 2018 Northeast Connecticut (NECT) Cancer Fund Walk & Race Angel Ambassador Shannon Labonte. 

As a tradition, the Day Kimball Healthcare Walk & Race committee selects a local cancer survivor whose story embodies the fight against cancer and the importance of supporting local, high-quality cancer care to serve as the annual event’s honorary ambassador. Shannon Labonte, a Danielson resident, was chosen to serve as last year’s honorary ambassador. She battled a rare cancer with courage, grace and a positive spirit until she passed away on April 27, 2018.

The Deary Memorial Recognition Garden, located on the grounds of DKH’s Schneider Center at 309 Pomfret Street across from the Day Kimball Hospital campus, was created by members of the Deary family in 2007 to memorialize, honor, and recognize cancer survivors and loved ones lost to cancer. 

Reverend Jonathan Scott, director of Pastoral Care at Day Kimball Healthcare and Ann (Deary) Tetreault will share thoughts and a poem in memory of Shannon and in recognition of what the garden represents at the dedication ceremony. 

Light refreshments will be served.

For more information about the garden dedication ceremony, please call the Day Kimball Healthcare Development Office at (860) 928-7141.
