LOCKPORT – Niagara Hospice families, volunteers and staff will celebrate a Day of Remembrance at 3 p.m. Oct. 6 in Lockport Senior High School, 250 Lincoln Ave. The event will be held in memory of Niagara County residents who have died while under the care of Niagara Hospice from July 1 through Dec. 31, 2012.

Invitations to family caregivers were mailed in early September, with a deadline of today to respond, which has been extended to next Wednesday. Families are asked to make reservations by calling the Niagara Hospice spiritual care department at 280-0768 and indicating how many family members will be in attendance.

Held annually since 1989, the nondenominational service will offer a time of remembrance through reflection, music and companionship as the names of Niagara Hospice patients who have died are read.
