Opioid Addiction Task Force to hold candlelight vigil Saturday

The Southampton Town Opioid Addiction Task Force will host a candlelight vigil Saturday night to remember those lost to the ongoing addiction crisis.

The vigil will be held rain or shine between 7 and 9 p.m. at Good Ground Park in Hampton Bays. The address is 9A Squiretown Road.

To prepare for possible poor weather, organizers are preparing to place small tents in the area as well as bringing a mobile stage to the park.

The task force has held two public forums since it formed last year. Southampton Town Supervisor Jay Schneiderman said the event will not feature a list of predetermined speakers, but rather those attending will have the opportunity to speak, according to 27East.com.
