Those who we have lost to overdose were remembered at an Overdose Awareness event hosted by Center Township and the Frankfort Police Department on Tuesday at Prairie Creek Park in downtown Frankfort.

“It is an international awareness day to honor and remember those lives lost to overdose,” Center Township Trustee Jami Pratt said. “It also brings awareness to the stigma behind it. And a lot of people don’t know what resources are available, so it is a great night for education as well as remembering those who were lost. It brings awareness to overdose, whether it is those who are still struggling or those who have lost lives.”
