Shining a Light in Our Community - January 1, 2019
Niagara folks are invited to join as community on January 1st at 6 pm at Montebello Park to turn on the light we each have brought at 6:15pm. Bring your phone, a flashlight, a candle, lantern, etc. This initiative comes from Silver Spires United Church who say: "Come have conversation and stand in light together and be a community safety net. Together our hope is to spark a change for the New Year. Please understand that this is not a rally, a vigil or a protest. Our hope is for our community to come together and be together."
