This event will take place from 6:00 to 8:00pm at the Dumas Community Center, located at 18 Belmont Drive in Dumas, AR.

A short program of readings, candlelight ceremony and music will be presented.  At 7:00pm, candles will be lighted in memory of all of our children gone too soon…that their light will always shine, according to a news release.
