The city of Santa Clarita, the Blue Ribbon Task Force, and the City Council will host the 4th annual "Evening of Remembrance" on Wednesday, April 21, at 7 p.m. at the city's Youth Grove in Central Park, located at 27150 Bouquet Canyon Road.

The annual event focuses on the importance of safe driving by remembering local youth who lost their lives in traffic-related collisions. The free event is open to the public and will include a reading of the 79 names represented at the Youth Grove.

"Teen driving safety remains a huge concern both nationally and locally, and it is so important for our Santa Clarita to understand how crucial it is to be responsible behind the wheel," said Councilmember and Blue Ribbon Task Force member Laurie Ender. "The city hosts the annual Youth Grove Evening of Remembrance event right before local prom nights and graduation to remind our teen drivers to make the right choices as they celebrate these rites of passage."

The half-acre Youth Grove features individual pillars that mimic tree stumps, each representing a young life cut short on the road.

The pillars surround a central monument featuring the "know more" vow urging the community to "know more" about safe driving habits, and to pledge that "no more" young lives will be lost from drinking and driving, or from reckless and irresponsible choices.
