Candlelight vigil raising awareness

A candlelight vigil was held Thursday evening at Knox United Church here to pay tribute to the tragic deaths of two local women who died 18 years ago at the hands of gender-based violence.

Since the deaths of Melani Sutton and Deanna Daw in 2000, an event has been held in the community on Dec. 6, which falls on the “National Day of Remembrance and Action on Violence Against Women.”
