Remembrance and Hope Memorial Vigil

Camden County 2021 Remembrance Vigil

On August 31, 2021, Community members gather for a candlelight vigil in remembrance of those we’ve lost to the disease of addiction and to raise awareness about the scourge of drug addiction and overdose throughout the country.

Families were invited to submit the names and photos of their loved ones prior to the event to be shown as part of a remembrance slideshow. The slideshow, in the intimate setting of the vigil, provided a rare opportunity for families affected by loss to remember and celebrate their lost loved ones publicly. The photos also served as a stark reminder that drug addiction has become ubiquitous, affecting diverse communities in our area and across the nation.
