Hospice Peace Path Ribbon Cutting and Dedication Ceremony
    A ribbon cutting ceremony will be held at the Peace Path at the Kings Mountain Hospice House on Sunday, December 9, 2012 at 2:00 pm. The energy and effort to renovate the Peace Path are in honor of Amanda Lake Heath’s grandfather, Charles E. Nalley, a long time Hospice board member and volunteer. Mr. Nalley has served countless hours as a family and patient support volunteer and was instrumental in acquiring the land for the Wendover Hospice House in Shelby, NC.
    Amanda Lake is the daughter of Angela and Scott Heath and is a senior at Shelby High School. She has been active in Girl Scouts for nine years and is a Senior Girl Scout member of Troop 20365. Her troop is supported by Central United Methodist Church and is led by Joan Mabry.
    This ribbon cutting ceremony is the culmination of Amanda Lake’s Girl Scout Gold Award Project. The Gold Award represents the highest achievement in Girl Scouts and is a commitment she made and completed as an individual. Earning a Gold Award required Amanda Lake to plan a take-action project, recruit volunteers, acquire the materials, complete the project, and see that it makes a lasting impact. Her project involved renovating and enhancing the Peace Path. Amanda and her volunteers installed stepping stones at each end of the path and distributed mulch with a brick border along the entire walking trail. Amanda is also providing different versions of the Bible as well as hymnals from different denominations to go along with an original prayer and meditation guide for those using the path. This project is intended to provide a peaceful place for Hospice patients, families, and staff to walk in the outdoors.
    Interested parties are welcome to attend the ribbon cutting ceremony to walk the path and enjoy refreshments. The friends and family members who have contributed their time and money to make this project possible will be recognized. Please contact Amanda Lake Heath at 704-481-0678 for more information.
