Poppies for Peace in Remembrance of the Children

Senior Independence Monroe and Franklin Artist participants in the Greater Cincinnati Alzheimer's Association Memories in the Making® were thrilled to make poppies for the Yellow Springs "In Remembrance of the Children; Poppies for Peace."
Thank you artists, for contributing to this meaningful project. From left to right: Darryl, Ted, LC, Rick, Bonnie, Michelle (seated), Senior Independence; Franklin. 
 Each poppy made is unique to the maker as each child is unique. The artist participants spoke of love and peace while creating their poppies and many wrote such messages on their flower. It was, and is, a heartfelt expression of love and sorrow.
The opportunity for these artists to engage, create and be a part of a public art installation of such profound message is one that each values and treasures.
 Thank you artists, for contributing to this valuable project
