With the arrival of fall comes time to Light Up the Lawn in Sallisaw. This year’s event will begin at 6:30 p.m. today (Monday) and will be at the gazebo on the east lawn of the Sequoyah County Courthouse.
The annual event promotes domestic violence awareness. Everyone is welcome, whether you are a survivor of domestic violence or if you just want to participate. Bring your friends, family or even your four-legged friends!
After the lighting ceremony, participants -- who are asked to wear purple -- will embark on a walk around town with glow sticks. The first 50 people will receive free glow sticks provided by the Cherokee Nation’s elder services program.
Sequoyah County commissioners declared October as Domestic Violence Awareness Month at their weekly meeting Monday.
