Event to Remember, March 26, 2007
“Rise Up: A Community Gathering for Remembrance and Renewal”.
It will be held at the Pav YMCA on Monday, March 26 at 7:30pm. As you know, our community is grieving the loss of a student and struggling with the unthinkable – losing a child to a senseless and violent act.
Several community members have sensed and are responding to the need for a community gathering to help provide some hope and healing. The evening will begin with a remembrance led by Father Sanchez of Mary Queen of Heaven Church, followed by a moment of silence and song.
The remainder of the hour-long program will be led by community members and service leaders with a focus on strengthening our city through community action and involvement. Following the program, there will be a reception with light refreshments providing time for the community to visit with Berwyn’s leaders and explore ways to get involved.
We hope you will join us. Your attendance would help send a message of reassurance that you are committed to helping our community move forward and grow stronger in the wake of this tragic event. Please feel free to extend this invitation to anyone you know.
