Out & About: Community Calendar Of Events & Activities

by Kim Riggs

Advocates to End Domestic Violence needs trained volunteers to help with the aftermath of domestic violence. Lisa Lee and her group do such a remarkable job behind the scenes of our town.

Domestic violence is often a silent crime The victims are generally women and children who finally stand up for their lives and need support to get through the ordeal.

Starting today, Advocates to End Domestic Violence will train qualified people in a two-part session consisting of six classes.

Helping Advocates raise money is Bill Burnaugh from Capitol City Loans, which is donating a car to be raffled off at the Taste of Downtown. To order a $10 ticket, call Advocates.
