The event will take place at the corner of West Avenue and Philpot Street in Cedartown.
The city is also encouraging churches to ring their bells 26 times beginning at 9:30 a.m. on Friday, Dec. 21.
City of Cedartown firefighters crafted white crosses bearing the names of the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting victims Wednesday morning.
Late Wednesday afternoon, they placed the 26 crosses – 20 small ones representing the children, and six larger ones representing the adults -- on the front lawn of Cedartown’s City Hall.
The crosses also included green and white ribbons, representing Sandy Hook’s school colors.
Teddy bears were also placed at the base of each cross by an anonymous individual on Wednesday evening.
St. James Episcopal Church in Cedartown will also hold a memorial service beginning at 9:30 a.m.. The church is located at the corner of Bradford Street and East Avenue.
Their church bells will ring 26 times in memory of each victim. Father Dunagan and Cedartown City Commissioner Larry Odom will offer words of encouragement.
Another memorial event will be held Saturday, Dec. 22, at 3 p.m. at the Nathan Dean Complex off of Highway 278 in Rockmart.
This event was organized by private citizens and began as a social networking campaign.
Organizers said there will be a balloon release and Rockmart Mayor Steve Smith will offer a show of support.
