DOVE Candlelighting Ceremony to be held Oct. 3
Shelby County Domestic Violence Program (DOVE) invites the community to its annual Candlelighting Ceremony on Thursday, October 3, at 7 p.m. at the Frist United Methodist Church, 205 W Main, Shelbyville.
There will be a brief service to remember victims of domestic violence and to celebrate the survivors and those who work to end abuse. The ceremony will be followed by light refreshments in the church basement.
“Hopefully there will come a day when services like this are no longer necessary. But until then, please join us as we light our candles against the darkness of domestic violence,” said Shelby County DOVE coordinator Susie Kensil.
SMH and New Vision Workshop canceled
Due to one of our presenters being in a very serious car accident over the past weekend, Shelby Memorial Hospital (SMH) is sorry to announce that the presentation on “How to Create Drug Free Families” scheduled for Monday, September 30, 2013, has been cancelled. Positive thoughts and prayers from the staff of SMH and New Vision are with him as he recovers. We will make every attempt to reschedule in the spring.
