Volunteers are needed to move the Obion County Right to Life’s display of the “Cemetery of Innocence.” Those willing to help are asked to meet at Exchange Street Church of Christ in Union City at 8 a.m. Saturday to remove the current display and take the crosses to a new location at Union City Baptist Temple at 1900 Longview Road, where the group plans to arrive about 8:15. The crosses will be placed next to the driveway for the church that connects to East Reelfoot Avenue across the highway from the National Guard Armory.
Anyone interested in standing up for life is encouraged to come and take part, a spokesman said, adding that participants are encouraged to bring three- to four-pound hammers to assist in the work. Extra hammers will be available.
“Please contact the Obion County Chapter at P.O. Box 55, Union City, TN 38281 if you would like to host our display cemetery and you have not been contacted by a representative of our chapter,” a spokesman said. For more information, call 884-2162 or 446-9289.
“Choose Life” license plates are available at the Obion County Courthouse. The additional fee for the specialized plates goes to pro-life crisis pregnancy centers in Tennessee.
