Montreal Massacre Vigil
The vigil is being organized by Sarah-Jane and Jami. We discussed possible days for the vigil. Saturday December 5th from 4:30-5:30 is a possible date and time for the vigil (this is still being decided on). Ideas for the memorial: Candlelight silent walk by the waterfront (meet at Lea Park), speakers and prayer service. The date, time, and location of this event will be confirmed at the next meeting. We are also looking for people that are interested in speaking at the vigil (please respond to this email).
For media coverage of this event the media release should be completed and submitted by December 3rd.
