Snellville – The Snellville Arts Commission will host a dedication for the city’s new labyrinth at 1 p.m. Jan. 30.
Mother Liz Hendrick, of St. Matthew's Episcopal Church, will give the invocation on the site of the labyrinth next to the Veterans Memorial in front of City Hall.
Mayor Witts, 12 Stone Church,
There will be remarks from Mayor Tom Witts and Judy Leavell of SAC. A ribbon will be cut, and Trey Hildebrant from 12 Stone Church will give the closing prayer.
There will be a reception following the event in the Community Room of City Hall.
A labyrinth is meant to be used as a meditation tool and they are often found outside churches and hospitals. A labyrinth is not meant to confuse walkers like a corn maze, but instead give them a winding path on which to contemplate and relax.
The labyrinth will be a seven-circuit model, or a Classical Greek structure. There would be no walls on the path and it will be a part of the new Veterans Park which is across from the Towne Green. Both the Towne Green and Veterans Memorial Park are currently under construction and are expected to be completed by May.
