To mark the fourth month of war in Ukraine, the Ukrainian Displaced Persons Committee for Central Alberta is hosting a vigil this Sunday.  

The committee says over 155 people have been welcomed to Red Deer and neighbouring communities most of them women and children who have had to flee their homes for safety.  

The vigil will be held this Sunday, June 26 at 2:00PM at the front steps of the Red Deer City Hall. People are encouraged to wear blue and yellow and bring Ukrainian flags.
