Video: Lassen Family Services Annual Wreath Laying Ceremony

Thursday, October 19th, 2017

A SusanvilleStuff Videofeature
by Marshel and Jeremy Couso

A crowd gathered at the Lassen County Sheriff’s Office Wednesday morning to share in an emotionally charged ceremony honoring the memory of Deputy Larry Griffith, Officer Robert McElrath, Deputy Jack Hopkins and other law enforcement personnel who put their lives on the line to protect victims of crime and to end domestic violence in our community.

Speakers included LFS Executive Director Peter Celum, Lassen County Sheriff Dean Growdon, Susanville Police Chief John King and Modoc County Sheriff Mike Poindexter. Emily Vorlicky performed two songs.

The ceremony is one of several events that Lassen Family Services hosts each October to raise awareness during National Domestic Violence Awareness Month.

    Thank you for always remembering. Thank you for posting the video and allowing me to see and share in the ceremony. It’s hard being so far away and not being able to share in these things that honor my brother who is loved and missed so deeply. I keep the people of Susanville in my heart and prayers always.
