The eighth annual free hour-long event is sponsored by JTConnect, the township’s mental health organization. It provides an enlightened way to reflect, to remember loved ones lost, and to bring hope for all those affected by suicide.

The goals of JTConnect are to change minds about mental health, achieve greater results, break down barriers, promote positive reinforcement, discover solutions, and make an impact in the community: “Together we can.”
