MADD to post virtual candlelight vigil

Remembering those who have died in the Red Deer area

Red Deer & District chapter of MADD will post an online slide show on Nov. 20 to remember those who have died as a result of an impaired driver.

Brenda Brown, chapter vice president, said the Virtual Candlelight Vigil will be posted in the evening on the MADD Red Deer & District Chapter Facebook page.

Typically an annual vigil is held at St. Luke’s Church, but the pandemic has prevented an in-person event.

“We’re very disappointed we can’t have the vigil in person, to gather with families in person. We know what each other has gone through and how difficult this time of year is. We just kind of lean on each other for support and we honour our loved ones,” Brown said.

“Not being able to do that is sad. People are hoping we can do that again soon.”

In 2020 no vigil, virtual or in person, was held.

“This year we definitely wanted to make sure we remember all those people.”
