“A Path to Hope” Raises Awareness of Domestic Violence & Funds for MAAV

photo-oct-16-3-03-02-pmOver 500 people joined together on October 16, a beautiful Sunday afternoon, to honor the victims of domestic violence and participate in MAAV’s 21st Annual Walk & Candlelight Vigil. A highlight of the event this year was the community art project reflecting our theme, “A Path to Hope.” This ambitious and creative project was spearheaded by Kris Rodolico of Follow Your Art and Meredith McGowan of the Melrose Public Schools. The mural included close to 4,000 circles made by groups and individuals across the community, including all the public elementary schools in Melrose.  A huge thanks to everyone who participated in the art project, walked with us, helped with the event, or donated to our cause. More photos to follow soon!
