The Air Force Enlisted Village will host its 15th annual Angel of Hope Candlelight Vigil on Thursday, December 6 at 6:00 P.M. at our Garden of Hope located at Bob Hope Village, 92 Sunset Lane, Shalimar. The Angel of Hope Candlelight Vigil remembers residents and loved ones who have passed on during the year. It is a peaceful and beautiful evening of reflection and warm memories which makes for a lovely start to the holiday season. The public is invited to attend.
AFEV’s Garden of Hope is lined with custom engraved memorial brick pavers and is home to the Christmas Box Angel statue, also known as the Angel of Hope. The statue is a symbol for those who have lost a loved one and is detailed in the book The Christmas Box by Richard Paul Evans. The book was a New York Times best seller and tells the story of a woman who mourns the loss of her child at the base of an angel statue.
A reception will be held following the candlelight vigil in the Bob Gates Welcome Center.
