Special Events

The Topeka TCF Chapter holds three special memorial events each year. We understand the need of bereaved families to have the opportunity to participate in events that celebrate and honor the lives of their deceased children, grandchildren and siblings. All bereaved family members are encouraged to participate in these memorial events.


Memorial Candle Lighting Program
In December of each year, the Topeka Chapter holds a Candle Lighting Memorial Program including special music, poetry readings and an opportunity for each family member to light a candle in memory of their loved one. This year the Candle Lighting will take place on Monday, December 7, 2020 at 7:00 p.m. Votive candles are provided and those attending are asked to bring a framed, desk-top photo of their child, grandchild or sibling to place on the Memory Tables (No larger than 8 x 10, please). You are also encouraged to bring your child's favorite holiday treat to share with the group following the Candle Lighting.This special program takes the place of our regular monthly support group meeting in December. PLEASE note the date change in your calendars.
