2023 Shatter the Silence Cancelled


Due to the impeding Tropical Storm, its potential impact, and concern for the safety of everyone, we have made the decision to cancel tomorrow's Shatter the Silence Event. We are overwhelmed with the response we have received for the event and will be rescheduling for a later date.

Stronger Together-we are stronger when working towards a happy and healthy society.
