Audrey Walker hopes people remember the troops who serve America abroad.

Her husband is serving in Iraq.

And on Sunday, the North Canton woman has organized an event aimed at bringing together people in downtown Akron to support the troops.

A candlelight vigil and a rally of encouragement for those in the military will start at 4 p.m. at the Lock 3 Live pavilion on South Main Street near the Akron Civic Theatre. The event will continue until dusk.

``I figured we needed to do something to bring our families together and to show support and to say `We love you, and we are still thinking about you,' '' said Walker, 41, a commercial account executive.

Sunday's gathering in the new park -- the city is donating the park's services -- is open to everyone, she said.
