Shannon Collins Memorial Garden

December 6, 2013

In October, a memorial garden was established at the Walnut Avenue Women’s Center in honor of Shannon Collins, a Santa Cruz business owner who was stabbed to death in May 2012.

Tomorrow, Saturday, Dec. 7, at 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., LELO(a leading designer of luxury “intimate” products” and sponsor of the garden) is hosting a special ceremony at the garden.

The Walnut Avenue Women’s Center at 303 Walnut Ave. in Santa Cruz is celebrating its 80th anniversary this weekend. In conjunction with this celebration, they are participating in a “Heart Stone Celebration.” Community members are invited to write the names of those whose lives we wish to honor onto stones, and then place them in the Shannon Collins Memorial Garden.
