LYNDONVILLE – A vigil planned for this evening has been moved from the Lyndonville school parking lot to inside the Lyndonville United Methodist Church at 102 North Main St.

Orleans County is under a wind advisory and gusts could hit 50 miles per hour.

Friends will gather at 5:30 p.m. for the vigil to remember Paul Lauricella, a 2007 Lyndonville graduate who died in a car accident on Wednesday morning. Lauricella, 24, had many friends in the community.

The public is invited to the vigil and adults are encouraged to bring their own candles and a paper plate or cup to collect the wax.

Shirts and stickers in memory of Lauricella will be for sale to help his family pay for funeral costs. The shirts for $12 will say “In Memory of Paul V. Lauricella. Sacred moments will never be lost in time.” Car window decals will be $3.
