Once again this year, the Circle City HIV/AIDS Coalition will host an evening memorial service designed to raise awareness and remember those Hoosiers lost to HIV/AIDS. Local AIDS activists, clergy and concerned citizens all will take part in the Program. The Indianapolis Men's and Women's Choruses will perform, in addition to Brenda Williams. Panels from the Names Project AIDS Memorial Quilt will be displayed. A reception will follow the Program.

Bil, the initial part of this post is a little confusing...

is the local memorial ceremony the same thing as the JCC service?

If not, where is the memorial cermeony?

Thanks.

Rick, I hope this clears it up! There are two services on World AIDS Day.

The first is sponsored by the Circle City HIV/AIDS Coalition. It will be held at Jesus MCC starting at 6pm.

The Community of Love's event is being held at the Indianapolis Urban League and also starts at 6pm.
