As our community struggles with the ongoing and devastating effects of opioid abuse, we must not forget those victims who have passed.

On Friday, April 30, 2021, 12:00 PM – 2:00 PM, we will be holding a memorial at the Government Dock.

We want to remember our family, friends and community members who have been lost to an overdose, and show our support for the loved ones they have left behind.

Flowers will be provided to drop into the water, as well as tobacco for prayers, and a message board for sharing memories. We will also have light refreshments for take-away.

This is a drop-in event. COVID-19 safety protocols will be in effect. Please wear a mask and keep your distance from other attendees you don’t live with.
