The Tamaqua Street Machine Association held its recent car show at Heisler's Dairy Bar in Lewistown Valley to benefit the upcoming Out of the Darkness suicide prevention and awareness walk, which benefits the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention (AFSP). AFSP raises awareness on suicide and depression by raising money for research and education to prevent suicide from taking place, and to provide assistance and a safe outlet for survivors of suicide. The walk will be held at the Hometown Farmer's Market and is set for Saturday Sept. 17. Check in will be from 1 p.m. to 2 p.m. The walk will be from 2 p.m. to 5 p.m. Ann Marie Calabrese, walk chairman, said people can register for the walk by visiting the website OutOfTheDarkness.org.
