A Night of Luminaries at Tracy Park
Governor Mike Dewine amended section 5.2269 of the Revised Code to designate August 31 as “Ohio Overdose Awareness Day”. To commemorate Overdose Awareness Day, On Tuesday, August 31st, 2021 we will be representing the lives lost in Scioto County due to the drug epidemic with a luminary. Project Remember Me is a Quiet Memorial; we request all community members remain silent after 8 pm. Project Remember Me’s purpose is to foster the remembrance of lost loved ones, assist with the grieving process, and encourage our community to reflect on the nature of our community crisis. We wish to add value, visibility, and dignity to those who may be marginalized or diminished: Unintentional Overdose Deaths.
