Tinian to join global candlelight vigil
Together with its 2nd Annual “Tree of Angels,” Tinian will hold its 2nd Annual Candlelight Vigil on Dec. 10, 2017, at 6:45pm. The community is invited to join and meet at the Tinian Gymnasium and walk to the San Jose Church. Candles will be lit at 7pm, together with Saipan and Guam—a candlelight vigil from time zone to time zone, as one country light theirs, and the other country blows out theirs. The event is dedicated to children of any age who have left this world too early. (PR)
