Eighth Avenue slates crime awareness


Eighth Avenue Missionary Baptist Church, 1200 W. Eighth Ave., invites the community to participate in a crime awareness event from 10 to 11 a.m. Saturday.

Participants will drive through Pine Bluff in an effort to bring about spiritual crime awareness, a spokesman said.

The focus will be on a song entitled “Guns hurt the ones we live with everyday.” Participants are asked to wear white tops and jeans.

Several victims in the community and their families will be recognized.
