Envision Williamston to sponsor COVID-19 vigil, lantern launch


Envision Williamston is planning a COVID-19 memorial event at 7 p.m. April 2.
The community wide event, which will be held in Mineral Spring Park, will include a Prayer Vigil and a Floating Lantern Launch on Big Creek to honor and remember loved ones who have been lost during the coronavirus pandemic over the last year.
The lantern launch will be at 7:30 p.m. at the creek and will have up to 200 lanterns.
The event is free to the public. Sponsorships are available to help pay for the bio-degradable lanterns. Sponsorships are $25 for individuals and local business, and they will be recognized the following week in The Journal and on social media.
