It’s time for “Unity in the Community.”

At 5:00 PM this Friday, October 7, as many as 300 people will take a walk in the name of community unity. Beginning in Central Park, a 45 minute walk will go down Adams Street behind the Richland County Courthouse. Other events begin an hour earlier in the Park, with live music, food and drinks, recognition of leaders, a balloon launch, special music, and a dramatic presentation entitled “Recovery Road.”

The event is family friendly and free. The goal is as clear – to bring the community together to confront the epidemic of heroin.

Organizers of the event have created a Facebook page, which can be accessed here.

Send us your news — of an announcement, event,
club news, fundraiser – whatever! It’s easy to do online.
