A candlelight vigil will be tonight in Bethel to raise awareness of the opioid crisis.  This third annual event is hosted by Bethel United Methodist Church and the HERO Project.  HERO stands for Heroin Education to Resist Opiates.  Resources related to overdoses will be available.  Music, speakers and luminaries for loved ones who have died from overdoses will also be featured.  The event will be on the church’s front lawn from 6:30 to 8pm Saturday, which is International Overdose Awareness Day.  The movement started in 2001 to commemorate those who died from drug overdoses.  Donations will also be collected for the Bethel Community Food Pantry.
