Let’s “Light up the Labyrinth” together – from 6:30 – 9:00 p.m. on September 13th, 2019. The warm glow of more than 600 candlelit luminaries will flicker along the path of Carleton Place’s Community Labyrinth for this year’s “Light up the Labyrinth” event.
To make this event more collaborative – organizers are asking participants to gather at 6:30 p.m. at the labyrinth to prepare and place luminaries for a 7:30 p.m. candlelit walk.
The labyrinth is located at the corner of George and Baines Streets beside the Carleton Place & Beckwith Heritage Museum, 267 Edmund Street in Carleton Place, Ontario.
The Labyrinth Committee (TLC):
The Labyrinth Committee (TLC) is a group of volunteers all with a keen interest in establishing a permanent labyrinth within our community. TLC is a sub- committee of the Carleton Place in Bloom committee, a committee of council.
Our introduction to labyrinths came about when a number of us attended a Carleton Place and District Horticultural Society meeting and listened to , “Lessons from the Labyrinth” a presentation by Jenny Anderson, a local horticulturalist and labyrinth builder. Inspired by the opportunity to create a unique public space for passive recreation, meditation and community events our enthusiasm about the project grew. Further encouraged by CPiB chair, and councillor Wendy LeBlanc our group came together from standing members of CPiB and other interested volunteers. Our first meeting was held in April of 2008.
