A candlelight vigil to support Westerly Hospital is scheduled for Thursday, Jan. 24, 2013.
originally, a march was scheduled, but due to the expected cold temperatures, organizers decided on a candlelight vigil. The vigil will begin at Westerly Middle School at 5:15 p.m
Westerly Hospital announced last week that the hospital will stop delivering babies on June 1, 2013. Organizers of the vigil are hoping the walk will result in hospital administrators reconsidering that decision.
