To all Departments and Community Members:
The Candle Vigil on March 21, 2013 had to be canceled. Unfortunately there was zero attendance for this event. It tells us we do have a problem with addressing the issue at hand.
I would like to thank the following Departments/programs for coming out:
S.T.E.P.P. program- Louis Lorenzo;
Wellness program- Roscoe and Sherwin;
San Carlos P.D. - R. Crowe and M. Ferrin;
Bylas Council - John Kitcheyan for donating the cups;
Bylas Council - Alicia Cadamus for donating the candles;
Bylas Community member - Steven Goseyun for use of the P.A. system;
Smokey - who was called out to a fire assignment at the last minute;
and Bylas Community member - Rose M. Rope.
Meth is like a wildfire spreading in our beautiful Apache communities. We all must take that extra step in the prevention of meth use and addiction among our people.
All conquest begins with prayer and perseverance.
There will be a Candle Prayer Vigil planning meeting for those that are willing to support the next event. The date is set for August 21, 2013.
