Unite by Light & Simsbury Unity Mile - A Simsbury Town-wide Luminary Event by For All Ages
Residents are invited to purchase a luminary kit and participate in Unite by Light 2020, a fully inclusive luminary event in Simsbury, CT that unites the entire community for a single night of connection and joy.
On December 6, 2020, Simsbury CT will be aglow by candlelight with the spirit of friendship, unity, and community! 2020 has been an extraordinarily challenging year for so many reasons and we invite local businesses, faith and other community organizations, schools, and residents of every age to #UnitebyLight by lighting luminary candles beginning at 5:00 p.m.
After lighting your luminaries at home, we invite you to walk or drive the Simsbury Unity Mile - a one-mile stretch along Hopmeadow St. in the center of town lit with more than 1,200 luminaries!
Single luminaries are being provided free-of-charge to adults in Simsbury living communities and adults age 65+ living in their own home (up to 600 single luminaries) so that they, too, can join the community celebration and #UnitebyLight.
Individuals and families are invited to purchase 10-light luminary kits* for their residence for $20 and/or become a Family Sponsor with a $100 donation that provides 25 older adults with single luminaries so that they, too, can unite by light. Luminary kits are available for pick-up and purchase at Fitzgerald's Foods on October 24, November 14, and November 21 from 10-4.
* Each purchase of a 10-light luminary kit supports the donation of a single luminary to an older adult.
Businesses, families, and other organizations are invited to sponsor the Simsbury Unity Mile. Each sponsor will be recognized with a sign along the Mile.All funds raised support the cost of the Simsbury Unity Mile and fund our intergenerational programs in Simsbury and neighboring communities.
