Gather Sunday at Memorial Garden

In Memory of Nick Thalasinos Healing Grove


Sunday March 26, the Incredible Community Garden will commemorate and plant a Healing Grove Memorial honoring the Life of Nick Thalasinos. Thalasinos was one of thirteen co-workers and friends who lost their lives in the December 2, 2015 terrorist attack that occurred at a San Bernardino County location. 


A Nick Thalasinos Healing Grove Memorial planting will take place March 26, 2017 at 10:00 A.M. The Memorial Park is located at the intersection of Mt. Vernon Avenue and "M" Street in Colton, California.   

The public is invited to attend and join Nick Thalasinos’s Family and Survivors in the Sunday morning planting ceremony.

The Healing Grove Memorial planting is part of a series of Incredible Community Garden (IECG) plantings in memory of the victims and survivors of the December 2, 2015 terrorist attack.

The park property is approximately 72,000 square feet; of which IECG will dedicate 40,000 square feet to the Memorial Garden.


"This planting is about bringing the community together in memory of Nick and those we lost. We invite all to come together for peace and healing," Mary Petit said, Co-Executive Director of IECG.


"The Nick Thalasinos Healing Grove Memorial will honor Nick's life and memory," Eleanor Torres said, Co-Executive Director of IECG. "For many, this memorial and others like it will help cope with the pain and shock that our community has gone through." 

Join IECG and Mr. Thalasino’s family for this special event as we plant trees as a living memorial to Nick Thalasinos. 

Bring your gloves, your shovel, and your heart.
