LAS VEGAS (KLAS) — Events to remember the victims of 1 October are already beginning, from a candlelight vigil that started Thursday evening to online support group meetings that offer ongoing help.
Thursday’s candlelight vigil was hosted by Silver State Health at their new offices at 2965 S. Jones Blvd., Suite C, in Las Vegas.
Candles were provided and attendees were able to share their stories if they wished.
A paper lantern project was also held at 6:30 p.m. and hosted by the bilingual staff of the Vegas Strong Resiliency Center. The event guided Spanish language participants through the process to assembling lanterns and discussed mental health and other services. The event ended in the lighting of the lanterns to symbolize creating light from darkness.
