The 3rd annual ‘Overdose Awareness Candlelight Walk’ will be happening in downtown Butler on Wednesday, October 4, 2017, and the public is invited to participate but not to overdose at the event.
Hope for Broken Hearts is a support group for families dealing, first-hand, with addiction. They meet at Mt. Chestnut Presbyterian Church every Tuesday, but for this event, they have teamed up with Grace at Calvary Lutheran Church in downtown Butler.
There will be a short service, a speaker, and then the candle-lighting as the walk then travels out of Grace Lutheran and down Main Street.
The entire event begins at 7pm.
Honoring people in a public forum that overdosed seems a bit far fetched, why are we not honoring someone that maybe made a difference in life? When will us working people of Butler get honored for something other then our tax monies paying for narcan!
