Season to Remember Memorial Event for Families of Homicide Victims is This Afternoon and Evening
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
The 26th annual Season to Remember Memorial Event for families who have lost loved ones to homicide will be held today from 2:30 p.m.-7 p.m. in the Children’s Garden of Centennial Park, but, unlike prior years, will be a come-and-go socially-distanced function without a planned program due to COVID-19.
The memorial event, sponsored by the police department’s Victim Intervention Program, the District Attorney’s Office, Tennessee Voices for Victims and the United States Attorney’s Office, helps families ensure that homicide victims are not forgotten during the rush of the holiday season. This afternoon and evening, families will be able to place Christmas ornaments, Hanukkah and Kwanzaa remembrances on a special evergreen tree as part of an annual ritual that began in 1995.
