MANASQUAN — Luminaries will line Main Street in Manasquan in remembrance of lost loved ones, as part of the fourth annual Light a Life Walk of Remembrance on Saturday, Nov. 30.

The walk is sponsored by Manasquan Bank with support from the Manasquan Chamber of Commerce, and will be held from 4 to 8 p.m. The rain date is set for Saturday, Dec. 7 at the same time.

“Holidays are really hard times for bereaved people and the onset of the holiday season can be very difficult, especially for newly bereaved people,” said Lynn Snyder, executive director of Common Ground Grief Center. 

“We do it just to raise awareness and people really enjoy having a luminary in memory of their person,” she added.

Luminaries can be purchased for a donation of $10 in honor of or in memory of a loved one and will be displayed along Main Street with the person’s name.
