EASTVALE TO HOLD CANDLELIGHT VIGIL FOR LAS VEGAS VICTIMS

At approximately 10:08 p.m. on Sunday, October 1, 2017, a lone gunman opened fire on a crowd of more than 22,000 concert-goers from his hotel room on the 32nd floor of the Mandalay Bay Hotel. The victims were across the street attending the Route 91 Harvest Festival concert when bullets rang out. Authorities state that 59 people have lost their lives with over 500 injured in the senseless tragedy. Among the injured and deceased was Eastvale resident Rocio Guillen. “This is a tremendous loss for our community”, Mayor Joe Tessari stated. “I think all of us are aware of someone in the city who was either taken from us, injured or present when this horrific crime occurred. It’s time for us to, again, give our love and support to those who have been directly affected by this tragedy.” Tessari continued by saying “one of the characteristics I love most about Eastvale is how we come together to lift up members of our community in times of crisis.” Please join us for a candlelight vigil on Thursday, October 5, 2017 at 7:30 p.m. in the Eleanor Roosevelt High School front parking lot to honor those impacted by this tragic event.
