At 7:00 pm on 8/31/22, we will gather at the green space and parking area of Poplar Grove Connector (in front of Daymark Recovery Services, Watauga County Health Department, DSS, and the Senior Center) to open an interactive art installation that will remain until 9/30/22 (when we will gather again for a closing event) and to honor together lives lost to overdose. We will end the event that evening with a candlelight vigil walk.
