Thank you everyone who showed up for our Candle Light! It kick off with Foster Marshall from the DA's office was our emcee, prayer at the beginning was by RevRoland Brown, Judge Alice Martin sang (beautifully) the Nation Anthem, Sheriff Larry Amerson introduced AG Luther Strange who talked about VOCAL and understanding our plight. After that I made some additional comments at Mt Cheaha VOCAL and thanked everyone. During that time Scott Manners Criminal Justice students passed out the candles and helped us light them. Matthew Wade play Amazing Grace and Taps on bagpipes (went straight to my soul) and Rev Fred Durante closed us in pray.
Next Board of Director's Meeting will be on Friday, May 9th at 11 AM. Thanks to all our board members for volunteering their valuable time to support crime victims.
