The Cayuga County AIDS Council sponsored the fourth annual vigil remembering those victimized by AIDS to coincide with the 12th World AIDS Day. Nearly 80 men, women and students lighted candles as they proceeded to walk along Genesee Street to the Schweinfurth Art Center for a reception and viewing of the National NAMES Project quilts.
The vigil was a time for mourning and remembering those who have died of AIDS with poetry readings, the singing of "Amazing Grace" and a prayer offered in compassion for those infected and affected by HIV and AIDS.
