8th Annual Quincy Overdose Candlelight Vigil

Thursday, August 30, 2018 - 6:30pm
Free Event

The City of Quincy will be hosting a candlelight vigil to bring attention to the issue of substance addiction. Please join us to remember those lost to drug overdose and give hope to others still struggling with addiction. You can help to reduce the stigma that surrounds addiction as we remember friends, family and community members. Let us stand together as a community to bring a face to these individuals, support each other, and make our voices heard to fight this devastating problem. We will gather a list of names of those who have died. Candles will be provided and lit when the names are read aloud during the program. Participants are also encouraged to bring a photo of their loved one. 

Registration of names to be read during the program will be collected from 6:30 - 6:50p.m.. Ceremony at 7:00 p.m. on the Thomas Crane Public Library Lawn.
