LeROY - The public is invited to a "celebration of life" event Saturday in LeRoy to recognize victims of domestic violence and mark what would have been the 10th birthday of murder victim Duncan Leichtenberg.
Mid-Central Community Action's Countering Domestic Violence Program will sponsor the event with Amy Leichtenberg, the mother of Duncan and Jack Leichtenberg, the LeRoy brothers who were killed by their father in March.
The 10 a.m. celebration in LeRoy's town circle will include a birthday cake, raffle and the unveiling of silhouettes for the Silent Witnesses domestic violence program. Visitors are asked to bring a toy for donation to Neville House, a center that assists abuse victims and their families.
