Have you or someone you love ever suffered from drug abuse? Have you ever given thanks that the negative effects of drug abuse haven’t entered into your life?
If so, you are invited to join the family and friends of Clayton Smith along with the Roane County Anti-Drug Coalition for a special prayer and balloon release at 1 p.m. Sunday, November 15, at Oak Ridge Memorial Park.
The event is being held to honor the recovery efforts of anyone who has suffered from drug addiction and to remember the lives of loved ones lost due to drug abuse.
Everyone is welcome to bring a picture of their lost loved one to be placed on the Memorial Wall during the event. Each balloon released at the end of the event, will have a special “Say No to Drugs” ribbon attached.
The event will be held at Oak Ridge Memorial Park at the gravesite of Clayton Smith. Clayton’s gravesite is located on the bottom left side of the evergreen cross which can be viewed from Bethel Valley Road in Oak Ridge.
Kevin Rhea is scheduled to lead the group in prayer before the balloons are released.
