DUI memorial coming to Mahoning
The Pennsylvania DUI Moving Memorial will be at the Mahoning Township Walmart from 9:30 a.m. to noon Thursday.
Carbon County Assistant District Attorney Jean Engler and police officials will speak at 10:30 a.m.
The memorial lists the names of persons killed in Pennsylvania by impaired drivers.
The moving memorial is housed in a 30-foot trailer, interior of which is hand painted with a garden scene. The interior features a 25-foot wall printed with 1,000 names of DUI victims that have been honored in the Memorial Garden, and is the focal point of the memorial. The interior replicates an outdoor setting in tribute to the original, but stationary, DUI Victims Memorial Garden.
The mobile memorial allows those who may not be able to travel to Harrisburg to still view the Memorial Garden. Monitors scroll the names of additional victims killed after creation of the wall.
