LGS Pinwheel Garden

In order to honor those who have passed away from LGS, the LGSF bereavement committee creates a pinwheel garden at the Walk n Wheel each year. Please consider supporting the bereavement committee at this year's walk by sponsoring a butterfly or flower.

Butterflies and flowers will be placed in the garden among the pinwheels to honor those whom we are remembering. For a $5 donation, you can place one in the garden with a personal message. To purchase a butterfly or flower, click here.
