17th Annual Candlelight Vigil hosted by Lee County Homeless Coalition
As a tribute to the 16 homeless individuals who have lost their lives while living on the streets or in shelters in Lee County this year, the Lee County Homeless Coalition will host its 17th annual Candlelight Vigil on Saturday, Dec. 21, 2013 at 6:00 p.m. The community is encouraged to gather on the steps of the Old Lee County Courthouse located at 2120 Main Street in Fort Myers to mourn those who have passed. The memorial event is also intended to educate and inspire the public to support the community’s need for more affordable housing, shelters, living wages and accessible health care. The Candlelight Vigil will include remarks by Lee County Homeless Coalition representatives, Janet Bartos, executive director, and Amy Davies, board member. An opening prayer will be presented by Reverend Allison Farnum of Unitarian Universalist Church. Music will be provided by Lee Community Youth Chorus, and "Taps" will be performed by Harvey Charter.
