Connecticut: Bristol to Remember Those Affected by HIV/AIDS

September 24, 2010

On Oct. 6 at 6 p.m., the city of Bristol will pause for an hour in honor of those affected by HIV/AIDS. Participants will gather at 5:45 p.m. at a non-denominational ceremony on the Federal Hill Green to receive candles and to add to a list of those to be remembered. It is the 19th year the Bristol Mayor's Task Force on HIV/AIDS has recognized AIDS Awareness Month in October with a candlelight vigil. The task force includes a broad group of individuals and agencies who meet monthly to address local concerns and plan HIV prevention efforts.
