WJFF’s Kingfisher Project is teaming up once again with the Jeffersonville Area Chamber of Commerce to organize a launch of Sky Lanterns before the annual James Dworetsky Parade in Jeffersonville. This launch will commemorate those whose lives have been impacted by narcotics and opioid addiction. You may purchase lanterns in advance to launch yourself, or if you are unable to participate, you may purchase lanterns which will be launched by Kingfisher Project/JACC volunteers. A portion of the proceeds from this event will go to WJFF, a non-commercial radio broadcaster whose work includes The Kingfisher Project, a documentary series raising awareness about the dangers, effects and magnitude of narcotics and opioid addiction in the station’s broadcast area.
Lantern’s will be available to pick-up or purchase between 5:30pm – 6:20pm at the Ice Cream Stand located on the side of Mullally’s Pub on Main Street on November 25. The Sky Lanterns will launch at 6:30pm directly across from the U.S. Post Office on Main Street. If you purchased your lanterns ahead of time online or at Oktoberfest they will be available for pick-up between 5:30-6:20pm at the ice cream stand.
