Memorial Garden

The Memorial Garden is open to the public at all times through the Third St. gate to Next Step’s backyard at 902 D Ave in La Grande.  It is a place of beauty and rest for anyone to visit, to mourn, pray, remember, celebrate and heal.

Next Step’s Memorial Garden is dedicated as a place to honor and remember children lost to miscarriage, stillbirth and abortion.  If you would like to order a Remembrance Plate for a child, you can fill out the order form online (below) or print it off and mail it to 902 D Ave., La Grande, OR 97850.  The cost is $15.00 per Remembrance Plate which covers the cost of the materials and installation.

You can choose up to three lines of printing with a maximum of 30 characters (including spaces) per line.
