An evening to come together to remember those we have lost and celebrate those in recovery. We will begin at 6:45 with a Mayoral Proclamation, followed by open mic time where all are welcome to share their stories. We wrap up after sunset by gathering in a circle with purple flashlights pointed skyward. We will have a non-denominational invocation to start the circle and then we’ll stand in silence while loved ones state names of loved ones lost. We’ll leave quietly after the circle disperses.

The overdose epidemic is everyone's problem, but it's being left to a small group to step up.

Do your part and support these unrecognised responders by pushing for change today.
