Our annual Candlelight Vigil was held on October 27, 2015 at the Seguin Event Complex. In 2014, Texas lost 132 women to domestic violence. We honored these victims by reading each name aloud, and by committing to work toward building safe relationships, homes, and communities. Our speakers this year were Guadalupe County Sheriff Arnold Zwicke, Board President Lena Saenz, and Executive Director Jennifer Fernandez. Pastor Tom Jones served as Master of Ceremonies. We'd like to thank everyone who came to help us shine a light on domestic violence. Special Thanks to the City of Seguin for use of the Gazebo, and to Joe and Sylvia Ramos for providing the sound equipment.
