Umpqua Community College Shooting One Year Later – UCC Strong Memorial Event

Saturday marked the one-year anniversary of the shooting at Umpqua Community College. The college’s Remembrance committee organized a gathering on Friday to remember those lost a year ago. Douglas County Officials and community members gathered Friday afternoon to honor the victims with a moment of silence in a ceremony held at the Douglas County Courthouse. Also, the Leadership Council of Douglas County organized a Community Care Support Team to offer counseling in Roseburg over the weekend. And the big event for the weekend took place Saturday morning. The Umpqua Strong 9K and 5K races kicked off at 10:00 am. The 9-kilometer distance honors each of the nine victims.
