Cremains Scattering Service

On Saturday, December 9, 2017, Ken was remembered by Circle Sanctuary Community members, friends and family with a Memorial Circle and Ashes Scattering at Circle Sanctuary Nature Preserve near Barneveld, Wisconsin.

ken-laukant-01Ken's Memorial Circle was held indoors at the Circle Sanctuary Temple.  It began at 1 pm and was facilitated by Rev. Selena Fox, assisted by others.  The Circle included the sharing of some memories and perspectives.

The Memorial Circle was followed by the scattering of some of Ken's ashes in the restored prairie section of Circle Cemetery, which is about a ten minute walk from the buildings.

A social in the Temple followed the Ashes Scattering.
