Homeless Vigil Postponed

The Homeless Vigil sponsored by the Fayetteville High School Student Council rescheduled for tonight is again postponed. The event was originally set for Dec. 5 and was postponed because of weather. High School Principal Steve Jacoby said a new date hasn't been chosen but student council members are determined to hold the event. Students sleep in makeshift cardboard boxes to raise awareness and money for the district’s homeless assistance program.
