 CHICO, Calif. -  The Chico Interfaith Council is encouraging people in Butte County and beyond to recognize 85 seconds of silence at 11:08 a.m. on November 8, 2019, the One Year Anniversary of the start of the Camp Fire.  85 is the number of people who lost their lives in the most destructive fire in California history. 

The Interfaith Council will host a symbolic bird release in Chico City Plaza, to rejoice in Butte County's strength and resilience. There will be a performance by the Chico High School Choir, music, prayer, 85 seconds of silence, then the release.  It will begin at 10:45 a.m. and wrap up by 12:15 p.m.

Organizers say because no one knows how they will feel on the somber anniversary, not everyone will want to attend organized events. So, they are also offering an online "template" to refer to with suggestions of ways to pay tribute individually. Their website offers suggestions you can download, like prayers, poems, and music.   You can find it here

The town of paradise also has a number of memorial events planned. you can find a complete list here
