  • Domestic violence awareness event is October 30

    Several people and officials in LaRue County will hold a Domestic Violence Awareness Night event at 7 p.m. on Monday, October 30 at the Hodgenville Civic Center.

    Event organizer Angela DeVore said the goal of the event is to help the public become aware of the signs of domestic violence, what assistance is available, where to turn for help and most importantly avoiding becoming a victim of domestic violence.

    “We also hope to clarify some common fallacies and stigmas associated with domestic violence,” DeVore said.
