Our com­mu­nity has fur­ther suf­fered tragic loss at the hands of vi­o­lence with the deaths of Faye Ger­aghty and Rachelle Wrath­mall, two cher­ished mem­bers of our town, taken from their loved ones much too soon.

The Can­dle­light Vigil is an op­por­tu­nity for men and women alike to come to­gether and show their support for vic­tims of vi­o­lence, their friends and fam­i­lies as well as to pay trib­ute to those who have been lost. This year, the LDWC would like to in­vite the Com­mu­nity to par­tici-

An­pate in the Vigil. As al­ways, guest speak­ers will ad­dress is­sues sur­round­ing sex­ual and gen­der based vi­o­lence, and pro­vide re­sources that will al­low us all to learn more and to be a part of the so­lu­tions, fur­ther­more, those in attendance who wish to share their thoughts and ex­pe­ri­ences, or par­tic­i­pate through artis­tic ex­pres­sion, will be wel­come to. Ev­ery­one is in­vited to be a part of this com­mu­nity event, and are en­cour­aged to bring friends and fam­ily.
