HOPE Center’s luminary celebration on Bridge Square

The HOPE Center (Healing Outreach Prevention Education Center) held its annual Victory Over Violence Luminary Celebration Thursday on Bridge Square. I got there in time to snap some photos (click to enlarge) but I didn’t get photos of the ‘Clothesline’ — T-shirts hanging throughout Bridge Square that were created by rape victims.

In the group photo, back row, L to R: Board member Bonnie Prawer, volunteer Shirley Younger, staff member Milia Garza, board member CC Linstroth; front row, L to R: staff members Melanie Matson, Tracy Goodwin, and Leah Lutz (Executive Director).

Among the organizations that purchased a luminary to support the HOPE Center were (left center photo) Community Resource Bank and (right photo) Steven Schmidt Construction. See this recent Northfield News article for more.
