Helping churches and businesses ward off violence is the aim of an event happening at the First Baptist Church in Antigo Thursday. Anyone who wants to attend the event should be at 414 Eckart Street at 6:30 pm. The message is that taking precautions is prudent even in smaller communities, in the event someone intends to do harm in a public place. Also, while some places already have plans in place to address such violence, there will be dialogue to determine if the plans are appropriate and adequate given the current atmosphere. Antigo police will be among those making presentations at the meeting.
