Florida: Candlelight Vigil on March 18 for HIV/AIDS Victims
March 16, 2010
A candlelight vigil to raise awareness about HIV/AIDS and its local impact will be held at 7:30 p.m. on March 18 in the Memorial Garden of the Universalist Fellowship of Vero Beach. "This evening we will recall friends and loved ones whose lives have been changed and sometimes ended by HIV/AIDS, as well as showing our support for individuals and communities affected now," said the Rev. Maureen Killoran, interim pastor. "Although this is a heart-focused vigil, we will also provide information about the local situation and how individuals might be able to help." The event is the result of efforts on behalf of the HIV/AIDS Awareness Network, whose motto is "Pass the message, not the disease." The church is located at 16th Street and 27th Avenue. Telephone 772-778-5880 for more information.
