HAVEN puts on vigil for World AIDS Day

A candlelight vigil will be held tonight in downtown Annapolis to remember those who have died of complications from AIDS.

Volunteers with HAVEN, a non-profit Anne Arundel County organization serving people infected with the virus that causes AIDS, planned the vigil to mark World AIDS Day.

The group will gather at 7 p.m. at City Dock, then walk up Main Street, around Church Circle to Lawyers Mall. People will say aloud the names of loved ones they've lost to the deadly disease.

HAVEN, which stands for HIV/AIDS Volunteer Enrichment Network, was formed in 1990 to help county residents struggling with AIDS. There have been 161 cases confirmed in the county since 1982. Ten more were reported this year, county health officials said.

HAVEN volunteers act as buddies, advocates, counselors, emergency baby sitters and as speakers to inform the community about the disease.
