On Sunday, August 7, 2016 Beck, as part of its Eighth of August Jubilee, will host its Second Annual Libation Ceremony. The theme for the Ceremony this year is, "A Community Remembers," and this year we will pay tribute to all ...
The Libation Ceremony is a symbolic pouring of liquid done in the spirit of remembrance. During the ceremony, we honor the past, so that we may learn from it. We honor the importance of family and friends. We look to God to show our reverence for the original source of our lives. We celebrate the memory of the departed. Family, friends and ancestors who have passed on. During this ceremony we will remember the original slaves that were freed on August 8, 1863, some of which are buried in this historic cemetery.
Additionally, this year we will also take time to remember all those who have died at a young age. If you have a young friend or family member that has passed on and would like to have them remembered, please REGISTER THEM TODAY. Each REGISTERED name will be called and remembered during the Roll Call. We remember … lest we forget.
