The community is invited to attend LACASA’s 16th Annual Domestic Violence Candlelight Vigil on Tuesday, October 9, at 7 p.m. in the courtyard of the historic Livingston County Courthouse in downtown Howell.

Each year, a Processional Walk is held to start off the event. Members of the public who would like to join in the 5-block processional are asked to meet on the front lawn of the Howell Carnegie Library at 6:30 p.m

The processional will leave the library at 6:45 p.m. sharp and make its way along the downtown sidewalk to the courthouse courtyard.

This is an inspirational evening of stories, tributes and music in remembrance of the victims and survivors of domestic violence. The Howell High School a cappella choir will perform.

There is no charge for this event.
