The local chapter of The Compassionate Friends (TCF), a volunteer-led organization that offers support to those have lost a child, grandchild or sibling, will take part in a Worldwide Candle Lighting. At 7:00pm local time, hundreds of thousands of persons will light a candle to honor a child gone too soon. Believed to be the largest mass candle lighting on the globe, this event creates a virtual 24-hour wave of light moving across the time zones. The event is open to those who have lost a son, daughter, grandson, granddaughter, brother or sister or for those supporting one who has lost those loved ones. People are asked to arrive by 6:30 in order to distribute candles in a timely manner.
