Editor's note: Court documents say the victim in this case was a 2-year-old girl, not 3 years old, as initially reported.
BROOKINGS – A community prayer service will be held Monday night for the 2-year-old girl who died last Wednesday in Brookings, and for all forgotten children.
Pastors Herb Wounded Head of the University Lutheran Center and Steve Palo of First Lutheran Church will lead the service, which will be held at 7 p.m. Monday, Aug. 5, at First Lutheran Church. The church is at the junction of Main Avenue and Eighth Street in Brookings. All are welcome.
Free-will donations will be taken at the service to be donated to a charity that benefits local children. More details will be forthcoming.
