Also on Friday night, at 9 p.m., “The Celebration of Hope” will be held to commemorate loved ones who have battled cancer. Luminaries, paper bags filled with sand and a candle, will be lit in honor or memory of those loved ones. Luminaries will be available for a minimum $5 donation at White River Market on Wednesday, Aug. 12 from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Or, contact Jon Bader at 675-5008 to order luminaries.
