Dec. 1 is World AIDS Day, one day set aside to focus on this pandemic, to encourage community and global discussion.
On Tuesday, Nov. 25, the Lake County Board of Supervisors will present a special proclamation to Community Care HIV/AIDS Project Drop In Center (CCHAP), designating "AIDS Awareness Week" in Lake County, from Dec. 1st through Dec. 6.
The proclamation also will honor the CCHAP clients and staff and community-wide support in making a successful, first-ever AIDSWalk Lake County this past September.
On Sunday, Dec. 7, AIDS Awareness Week will culminate with the first-ever “Lake County AIDS Service of Remembrance.” This special community event is a collaboration between CCHAP Drop In Center, the Stonewall Democratic Club and the Clearlake Oaks Community Methodist Church.
The special service begins at 2 p.m. and is located at the CLO Community Methodist Church, on The Plaza (in back of the Red and White Market).
The service will be officiated by Rev. Dr. Rick Schlosser and will be an open, community-wide event- where all are welcome.
The theme is to honor those who have gone before us and to encourage personal responsibility to keep the dialogue moving, all year-round, through individual efforts of leadership.
Stop AIDS. Keep The Promise. Empower. Deliver. Lead. Make a healthier Lake County. Please join in this this very special commemorative event.
