We shall be walking with social distancing to the beach for a beautiful candle lit memorial that shall include the following:

– Ropes with purple ribbons every 6 feet as we walk down both sides of the Atlantic Avenue;
upon arrival we will continue social distancing in a circle. The ropes will be tied off to commemorate the ties that bind are community together.
