Picnic promotes domestic violence awareness



A Domestic Violence Awareness Picnic in memory of Tabitha Brock will be at 1 p.m. Sunday at the Shields Park Shelter House.

The event is being organized to bring the community together to promote more awareness of domestic violence and to start a local support group for people who have lost loved ones to domestic violence, according to a news release from Nikki Allman.

Allman is the sister of 23-year-old Tabitha Brock of Seymour. Brock was murdered and left in a burning vehicle in May.

Police arrested Gerald Eugene Combs Jr., 29, of Seymour on charges of murder, arson and neglect of a dependent in connection with the investigation into Brock’s death.

The meal will be a pitch-in and anyone planning to attend can bring a covered dish and drinks.

Organizers are encouraging those who attend and who have lost a loved one to domestic violence to bring a photo of their loved one in a frame for display. They also are encouraged to write a short note about their loss to put with the photo.
