A community candlelight vigil is planned for Wednesday, May 25 at 7:30pm at the Lemansky Recreation Complex (aka Rocketland, near Horgan Arena).
Community members are invited to join their fellow residents for a time of solidarity and rememberence of Officer Ronald Tarentino, Jr., and former Auburn Fire Chief, Roger Belhumeur. Taranetino was tragically gunned down during a traffic stop early Sunday morning. Roger Belhumeur lost his long battle with cancer over the weekend.
According to organizers, the event will include a singing of the national anthem, a benediction will be offered by local clergy, and Taps will be played. Residents are asked to bring candles and/or red and blue glow sticks.
A large turnout is expected; please use courtesy and common sense when parking. If you are able to walk or ride share, organizers ask that you do that.
