Preview the Power of One at the Community Arts Center
Wednesday, September 9th, 2015
6:00pm – 8:30pm
220 West Fourth Street, Williamsport PA
I’m excited to share with you a preview of Power of One: Preventing Suicide in America at the Community Arts Center this September.
This film is very personal for me, as I know it is for many of you. Too many of us have lost friends and loved ones to suicide. I believe suicide is preventable. But to help prevent it, we have to talk about it. That’s why we are holding this event in conjunction with National Suicide Prevention Awareness Week.
The goal of this Preview is to show you short vignettes of the stories we’ve captured thus far. Several local residents and Pennsylvania natives are participating in Power of One, and their stories — ranging from the long term affects of suicide on families, to lived experience of overcoming depression and suicidal ideation — are powerful beyond measure.
Ami Pagana Suicide Loss Survivor (Montgomery, PA)
Tonya Anderson Suicide Prevention Advocate, Counselor and Person with Lived Experience (Williamsport, PA)
Earl Granville Adaptive Athlete, Suicide Loss Survivor and Motivational Speaker (Scranton, PA)
Rose Ann Myers Collins McNerney Mother of Navy SEAL, Suicide Loss Survivor (Lock Haven, PA)
In addition to sharing these stories, I will outline my direction for this film, its mission and approach. And most importantly, discuss the resources that are available to all of us in the Williamsport area.
We’re kicking off the event with an Opening Reception at 6pm, featuring a few of your favorite Tag’s dishes, served hors d’oeuvres-style.
This event is free and open to the public; donations to the film are welcome and tax-deductible.
6:00pm – 7:00pm Opening Reception
7:00pm – 8:00pm Power of One Preview
8:00pm – 8:30pm Discussion and Q&A
REGISTER TO ATTEND
Thanks to the generous support of Dr. Zach and Katie Ritter, the first 300 registrants will receive a complimentary special edition copy of Beyond The Wall: The Journey Home.

My Best to You and Yours, Alivia
