With the support of Council, Mayor Tim MacPhee has proclaimed November as Family Violence Prevention Month in the Town of Vegreville. 

Mayor MacPhee calls upon citizens to help those at risk learn where to turn by helping those affected by family violence know what supports and resources are available to them.
