Hospital foundation plans memorial service

Johnson Memorial Hospital Foundation invites the community to remember infants and children who’ve passed away during a special remembrance event Saturday.

Anyone who has been affected by pregnancy and infant loss can attend a remembrance and balloon release ceremony at 4 p.m. in the Reflection Garden at Johnson Memorial Hospital, 1125 W. Jefferson St., Franklin.

October is National Pregnancy and Infant Loss Awareness Month, and Oct. 15 is observed every year in the U.S. as a day of remembrance for pregnancy loss and infant death, according to a statement from the foundation.

No RSVP is necessary. For more information, contact the maternity care center at Johnson Memorial Hospital, 317-736-3450 or visit
