Domestic Violence Awareness Month is being marked in Redding on Thursday. A small ceremony will be held in the gazebo on the Redding Town Green at 9:45am Thursday. There will be brief remarks and the reading of a proclamation by the First Selectwoman. Those in attendance are being asked to wear purple in honor of the day. Purple Thursday is a national day of action each October to raise awareness about domestic violence and a way for people to show their commitment to promoting healthy relationships.
