October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month. 38 Chinese Lanterns will be launched on the shores of Lake Michigan at Dusk in memory of the 38 individuals who were murdered in a domestic violence incident in Wisconsin last year. The event will kick off inside the Youth Club with Guest Speaker, Jessica Honish. Jessica is currently the Lead Advocate for the Rainbow House Domestic Abuse Services, Inc. located in Marinette. Jessica worked along side of Trish Waschbisch, the Interim Director at the Rainbow House, who was fatally stabbed by her boyfriend, Brent Kaempf, on April 28, 2013. The death of Trish left many wondering how a domestic violence advocate could herself become a victim. No one is immune to domestic violence and the sole responsibility lies with the offender. Let's come together as a community to remember those who have lost their lives and celebrate those who have survived. Join us inside after the ceremony for a bake sale and complimentary chicken booyah and hot chocolate!
