She said that at the end of night there would be a vigil where luminaires can be purchased in advance for $10 and will be lit during a special ceremony where victims and survivors are recognized while survivors are sharing their stories.

“We have sponsorship packages available for local businesses and individuals that have a nice incentive package to go with the level that they choose to give,” said Lee. “We will have free food, give-aways, fun for the kids, vendors and entertainment. That entertainment will consist of local talent but we will also have an award winning artist singing as well, which will be announced when I finalize it.”

Board approved of Chair Monty Merchant’s recommendation to have the county’s purchase order cutoff set for Sept. 16, with the exception of emergency purchases.
