Rockford residents are expected to gather for various memorial ceremonies throughout the community.
Last year more than 700 people attended a memorial service in Davis Park.
Organizers say the theme of this year's memorial service at Rock Valley College involves peace and reconciliation.
The evening starts at 6:30 p.m. We will have more information about the various ceremonies on 23 News throughout the week.
