Deadline On Prayer Flags For Missoula Avalanche Victims

Posted: Updated:
MISSOULA - Community members are working to heal the Missoula community after an avalanche demolished a home almost two months ago, killing one.

A volunteer has gathered about 300 prayer flags from the community and people across the nation to hang to honor victims and volunteers. Prayer flags are being collected at the Jeannette Rankin Peace Center until 6 p.m. Friday. Anyone can make one by decorating a 9"x 6" piece of cotton.

Organizers said the goal is to honor victims, and volunteers and to help the community heal after this tragedy.

The flags will be hung for the first public viewing at Caras Park for May 2 First Friday, as a community art project. Then, they will fly lower for close-up viewing at the Celebration of Community on May 11 from 2-5 pm at Ten Spoon Winery, where avalanche victims and volunteers will gather.

For more information on how to make a flag, head to the Missoula Avalanche Victims Facebook page.
