Group plans vigil for Newtown victims, gun reform

WOODSTOCK – Six months since the school shooting in Newtown, Conn., a group is holding a candlelight vigil on the Woodstock Square to honor victims and promote gun reform.

The Newtown Candlelight Memorial will start at sunset Friday, June 14. It's expected to last from about 8:30 p.m. to 9 p.m.

A sign-making session will precede the vigil from 6:30 p.m. to 8 p.m. on the 2nd floor of the Woodstock Square Mall. The vigil will take place at Woodstock Square Park.

The event was organized by a loose group of McHenry County residents who want to protect children, schools and communities from gun violence. They encourage "common-sense reforms," according to news release.
