With the support of Fort Pierce Lions Club, the Candlelight Vigil: “Remember for Change,” is planned for 6:45-7:30 p.m. on Friday, October 29, 2021, at Gazebo Park and the south grounds near the Fort Pierce City Marina.
This event honors those who have been impacted by impaired and distracted drivers. We are encouraging St. Lucie County to come together and use this remembrance of our loved ones* as a catalyst for change through our hope and actions.
This Candlelight Vigil will not only raise awareness, but it will also educate, inspire, and empower our community to bring about the lasting changes which saves lives.
Special guest speakers will include a Mothers Against Drunk Driving (MADD) advocate, Mayor Linda Hudson, local law enforcement, and others. The goal is that everyone who attends will make a commitment to “be the change” in the life of a young person or adult, so that we can end impaired driving in St. Lucie County.
Please join us at 6:45pm on Friday, October 29th! For more information, kindly contact Lion’s Zone Chair , Crystal Samuel, 772-940-9939 or Melanie Trewyn at 772-333-1533.
* Attendees are invited to bring a display photo of a loved one who was the victim of an impaired driver. A display table will be available for the duration of the Vigil.
