Tennessee Gov. Bill Haslam will honor victims of homicide at the 11th annual Tennessee Season to Remember.
Families and friends of people who lost their lives to violent crime are invited to attend the Thursday event and hang ornaments in memory of their loved ones on memorial wreaths.
The ceremony takes place at 5:30 p.m. at First Baptist Church in downtown Nashville. After the event, the wreaths will be moved to the Tennessee State Capitol, where they will remain on display throughout the holiday season.
This year's keynote speaker will be Ed Wisdom III, whose 71-year-old father was murdered. Wisdom established the Wisdom Foundation in honor of his father. Its purpose is to educate at-risk individuals and provide them with a solid foundation on which to build productive lives.
