El Dia de los Muertos on Oct. 28

BEACH LAKE, PA - On Sunday, October 28th, the Upper Delaware Unitarian Universalist Fellowship will present a service about “el Dia de los Muertos", the Day of the Dead, a Mexican holiday where festivities unfold over two days in an explosion of color and life-affirming joy.
The theme is death, but the point is to demonstrate love and respect for deceased family members. We will explore the history of the celebration and some of its elements such as the calaveras, foods, flowers, and papel picado. We will create an ofrenda, a festive altar of remembrance, and by our adding a picture or small memento to the ofrenda, we will celebrate our ancestors and people whom we remember and cherish.
The one hour service will begin at 10:15 a.m.
at the Berlin Township Community Center in Beach Lake, PA and will be followed by a social time with light refreshments. All are invited to attend and directions can be found at
