A Candle Light Vigil is planned for the parking lot of the County Annex in Mineral Wells for 7-year-old Athena Strand on Wednesday Evening, December 7 at 6:30pm.

Please join the community in the West Parking Lot before 6:30pm to light a candle in honor of the life of the little girl who has captivated our hearts in this senseless tragedy. The Baker Hotel and Spa will be lit up with pink lights in honor of Athena’s favorite color.

Athena’s mom has recently stated that not only was pink her favorite color but Christmas was her favorite holiday and she was anticipating it very much. Everyone is encouraged to bring an unwrapped toy to the vigil and we will donate them in her name to our local Child Advocacy Center.

Let’s honor Athena Strand and never forget her beautiful soul.

Come light a candle with community members and celebrate the life of 7-year-old Athena Strand
