100 Basking Ridge Residents Hold A Vigil

June 5, 2020

100 Basking Ridge residents gathered outside a private home to hold a candlelight vigil in solidarity with those who are grieving the lives lost to the very real problem of police brutality in communities of color.  

Organized by Bernards Township resident Jenny Speal, the group observed five minutes of silence followed by prayers of litany led by the Rev. Rick Morley, pastor of St. Mark’s Episcopal Church and the Rev. Dennis Jones of Basking Ridge Presbyterian Church.  Bernards Township Democratic Committeewoman Susan Okin Goldsmith read the Prayer For Our Country from the Jewish Liturgy.  Other speakers included Somerset County Freeholder Sara Sooy and Democratic Committee Treasurer Ana Duarte-McCarthy.
