CAPC A Vigil To Remember
Sails on the Square
Downtown Hickory, NC
CAPC A Vigil To Remember The Childrens Advocacy and Protection Center of Catawba County will hold a Vigil on October 22 at noon to remember the 18 children listed by the NC Child Fatality and Prevention Team as homicide victims by a parent or caregiver during the prior calendar year. The Vigil will be held at Sails on the Square in downtown Hickory, N.C. A bell rings as each childs name, age and county is read aloud. Simultaneous with the ringing of the bell, a T-Shirt holding the child&rsquo s first name and age will be displayed for everyone to see. This year 19 T-shirts will be displayed. In addition to the 18 names, there will be one for the Unknown unreported death. The art work on each shirt is created by art students at Hickory High under the guidance of their art teacher, Teresa Bentley. After the ceremony, Linda Henson takes the shirts and creates a quilt. The CAPC will also reveal last years quilt designed and created by Linda and Dave Henson. After the event, this quilt will be displayed somewhere in Catawba County as designated by Darlene Burgess, the Children&rsquo s Protection Award Winner for 2019. Please join us as we remember the innocent children who suffered a senseless death in North Carolina during 2018. More information about the CAPC is available on its website at catawbacountycapc.org.
