Just looking at the Free Acres archives one fact is evident; there are a lot of people that have come and gone in Free Acres over the years. We use the terms Arrivals and Departures tongue-in-cheek to make light of the cycle of life, but we sincerely share the joys of the arrivals and sympathize with the families of the departed. We also have the "More" section. Although births and deaths are most common, there are other life events that may be announced on our site for the world to share. From wedding announcements, to graduations, to awards and everything in between. If you are a past or present Free Acres resident or family member and you want to share a life event with us, please e-mail and note the event, dates, and names. Also please indicate in your e-mail that we have permission to post your announcement publicly for the world to see. Thanks, Free Acres Historical & Archive Committee
