DAVENPORT -- Memorial for the victims of Hurricane Sandy will be 6 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 29, at the Centennial Park Gazebo, at the foot of Marquette St., Davenport.
The special ceremony will remember the victims, 117 lives lost in the US and 69 in Canada and the Caribbean, when two weather related events merged on the coast, causing the worst storm to hit the northern US in 42 years.
While the cost of recovery from Hurricane Sandy was second only to Hurricane Katrina, the cost to the victims was the ultimate sacrifice. The ceremony will gather people to share the grief of those impacted and pray and reflect for their efforts to return to a normal life. The Rev. Bud Grant will give the invocation and speakers from several faith communities will speak.
