Shine a Light on Domestic Violence Awareness

At the beginning of Domestic Violence Awareness month we asked local businesses to support the cause by putting purple lights up. We have had such an amazing amount of support from our community. As you drive through town you can see that we are truly "Shining a Light on Domestic Violence Awareness". We don't have all the businesses pictured below that are supporting this cause, but we will continue to post them as we get them.
Thank you all!!!
