A Vigil Service to observe the first anniversary of the devastating earthquake that struck Haiti almost a year ago, is being organized by the Friends of Sgt. Mark Gallagher.
The ecumenical service will take place at St. Gertrude’s Church in Woodstock on Wednesday, Jan. 12, at 7 p.m., allowing all from the local area to join together in remembering that horrible and deadly day in 2010.
The evening will include a slideshow of the conditions in Haiti, then and now, along with musical selections, readings and the address by a member of the steering committee to build the Sgt. Mark Gallagher Memorial Vocational School in Haiti.
All who were touched by the earthquake and the subsequent events that have hit the island nation in the past year are encouraged to attend.
