Remembering December 10-11, 2021

Light The Path

light the path

All are invited to participate in a community-wide light vigil along and near the tornado paths by gathering together with candles, luminary bags, spotlights, bucket lights, etc. and directing white light skyward, beginning by 6:11 pm, for a period of at least 17 minutes. This start time is approximately one year and 17 hours from the time the tornado started its trek across Warren County. There were 17 deaths attributed to these tornadoes in our community alone.

The “Light the Path: 6:11 on 12/11” vigil is to REMEMBER all we have lost, including seventeen souls who died, to REFLECT on the strength and resiliency of our community in the face of devastation and adversity, and to RESOLVE to continue the work of recovery and restoration as we move forward. A limited number of luminary bag kits will be distributed at the Day of Giving event at Preston Miller Park on December 10.


Operation Appreciation: Day of Giving

Saturday, December 10, 1-3 pm at Preston Miller Park: Dish Network and Circle Plus will host an Operation Appreciation Day of Giving disaster preparedness kit giveaway at Preston Miller Park from 1:00-3:00 p.m. Individuals and families can stop by the Preston Miller Park Shelter near the Premier Grounds soccer fields and put together their own personalized preparedness kit while supplies last.

All items are recommended by the American Red Cross and provided at no cost to attendees. Our local American Red Cross chapter and Bowling Green-Warren County Disaster Recovery will also be there sharing resource information and luminary bag kits for the light vigil on December 11.
