The Berkeley County Prevention Board and its member agencies are sponsoring the 28th Annual Candlelight Memorial Services. The Prevention Board has hosted these Memorial Services each year since 1989. The purpose is to increase the awareness of driving while impaired, to remember loved ones who have lost their lives, and to remember all those who have been affected by crashes involving drunk drivers.
There will be a special candle lighting ceremony in commemoration of victims and their families. We extend a special invitation to those who have lost a family member or have been otherwise affected because of an impaired driver to light a candle on behalf or in memory of your loved one.
The program is one way the public can speak out against impaired driving. Another way you can help is to be a responsible host. Don’t let anyone get behind the wheel of a car after drinking or taking drugs.
We ask that you join us at Moncks Corner A.M.E Church (306 West Main Street) at 6:30 pm on Tuesday, December 5th. If you know someone whose family has been affected by a drunk driver, please encourage him/her to attend and light a candle in honor of his/her loved one/s. If you would like to share the contact information with us, we will send a special invitation.
For further information, call 843-797-7871 ext. 113 or ext. 114.
