A memorial demonstration will be held at 5 p.m. Wednesday on the Venango County Courthouse steps to honor the 17 people killed during last month’s school shooting in Parkland, Florida.
The Oil Region Rising organization, part of the national non-partisan Indivisible group, is sponsoring the event.
Commissioner Tim Brooks said the property is always open to the public for the purpose of free speech so long as laws are obeyed.
The stated purpose of the demonstration is to remember those high school students in Parkland, Florida, who were killed by a former student with an AR-15 rifle, as well as to support students who are protesting their lack of school safety.
