 dren. Working with the family, the center used the more than $23,000 they received in Hazel’s name to build a children’s play area at the ball field.
The grand opening will be a celebration of her life and leg- acy that will be a fun time for people of all ages. The day will begin at 11 a.m. with a dozen different local vendors, food, a few raffles, and even a Touch- A-Truck event. Unveiling of the new park sign will take place at 11:30 a.m., and while kids are playing and adults are shopping, they are also invited to grab a seat on the bleachers to enjoy a community Wiffle Ball Tourna- ment, which is scheduled to kick off at 12 noon. Hazel enjoyed playing wiffle ball when she wasn’t on a swing set or sliding board, and hearing that, TTCC Assistant Director Dan Ma- cLean and Bristol Police Chief Kris Bean decided it was only fitting to hold a tournament in her honor.
Information and registra- tion for the Wiffle Ball tour- nament are now available by calling TTCC at 603-744-2713 or emailing People of all ages and abilities can register as either a couple, group, or single player who will be assigned to a team, or they bring a whole team of their own to the tournament. Donations to play are appreciated and all contributions received during the day will benefit the Hazel’s Light Foundation.
Hazel’s Light Foundation is a nonprofit group that has been founded by the Roy family to help provide love and support for people like themselves who have lost a child.
“The short-term goal right now is to find local space where we can host a couple of families for a retreat in a healing envi- ronment,” Charlene said.
Long term, the couple hopes to have a full-fledged camp for grieving families somewhere in the Newfound area. In the meantime, the Roys have begun hosting day retreats where par- ents and siblings can come to- gether with others who have found themselves in a similar, life-altering situation. By mak- ing new friends, enjoying a vari- ety of activities, and being able to talk with one another, Char- lene hopes the healing process can at least begin for many.
The grand opening for Ha- zel’s Park also has a special meaning for her, her husband, and their youngest daughter Elodie- it is scheduled to take place on the day before what would have been Hazel’s sixth birthday.
“This really couldn’t have come at a better time for us,” Charlene said. “We couldn’t be where we are today without the great support of this wonderful community, and we look for- ward to seeing a lot of people there that day to enjoy all we have planned.”
