Wilmington Substance Abuse Coalition To Hold Candlelight Vigil On September 17

WILMINGTON, MA — The Wilmington Substance Abuse Coalition is holding its 3rd Annual Candlelight Vigil on Monday, September 17 at 7pm on the Wilmington Town Common.

This night of healing and hope will include:

  • Associate Pastor Kim Gold from the Wilmington United Methodist Church will lead participants in a prayer
  • The Wilmington Police Department will be on hand with information
  • Individuals in recovery will speak about their story & share experiences
  • Community resource table showing substance abuse organizations in the area
  • Live Music by Vin Colella, John Murphy, Mary Giroux, Devin Giroux, Emily Strong, Renee Marcou
  • Slideshow in honor of our lost loved ones
  • Lights illuminated in purple by donation of Wilmington Sons of Italy
  • Flowers donated by Floral Dreams

If you would like your loved one’s name read, please send information (name, age, date of passing, and town) and photo to Samantha Reif at sreif[at]wpd.org.
