The group met in the center of the shopping and entertainment spot for the vigil hosted by the Family Violence Prevention Center to help raise awareness of domestic violence in the county as part of National Domestic Violence Awareness Month. 

The program included music and the “Clothesline Project”, a display of story-telling T-shirts created by those who receive services at the center.
