MASON CITY – In 2007, Congress designated September 25th at the National Day of Remembrance for Murder Victims. The annual National Day of Remembrance for Murder Victims gives us all the opportunity to remember those lost to homicide, and honor their memories. The purpose of this day of remembrance is to focus on the impact of murder on families, and communities, and ways to support and serve survivors.
Crisis Intervention Service will be hosting an event to honor the memory of those who have lost their lives to violent crime in our community. The event will include a balloon release in honor of each victim, and a small reception before the ceremony. Cake and beverages will be provided.
The event will be held on Saturday, September 24, 2015 from 6:00 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. at East Park Shelter House #3 in Mason City, Iowa. This event is free and open to the public. Please RSVP to Courtney at 641-530-5180 or Courtney@CIShelps.org.
The mission of Crisis Intervention Service is to provide persons affected by domestic violence, sexual assault and homicide with professional, confidential, 24-hour services including safety and support and to prevent violence in our communities through education. Crisis Intervention Service promotes a society free from violence and oppression through social change, effective community partnerships and awareness.
