In the wake of the recent tragedies across the nation last week, Councilman Bobby Howard is hoping a local event will help begin to heal the wounds created throughout the country.
The councilman and others have organized a Snellville Unity Gathering scheduled for 7 p.m. Thursday on the Towne Green in front of City Hall.
This is in direct response to the tragedies of the past week, Howard said. My heart hurts for our entire country. So, let’s begin in our own hometown. My goal will be for this to be a time of bringing our community together and to pray. I hope to see you there. You can make a difference. Join local clergy, local youth and city officials as we gather to have a conversation and build unity in our community.
Howard is inviting residents of the surrounding communities and the congregations of local churches.
A list of guest speakers and more details will be released before the Thursday event.
