Jefferson Holds Vigil For Those Affected By Suicide
Township hosts Light a Luminary on Sunday at gazebo.
Jefferson Township's Mental Health Project, Connect, will host an event on Sunday to remember those affected by suicide.
The group is hosting Light a Luminary at 4:30 p.m. at the gazebo at the Municipal Building where residents can honor and remember loved ones affected by the tragedy.
Residents can honor a loved one by writing their name and/or message on the luminary bag and lighting the candle within.
The ceremony will go on until about 5:15 p.m., when the group will launch a sky lantern in honor of all the lives lost.
The event will go on either with rain, snow or shine. Donations and support for this event are from the Jefferson Township Municipal Alliance Committee and A Chocolate Lab of Oak Ridge.
