UTICA- In honor of World AIDS Day, ACR Health held a church service at the Grace Episcopal Church.  The Church celebrated the lives of those affected by the disease.

A quilt dedicated to the victims of the disease was also on display at the church. Each panel was custom designed for each victim.

The Names Foundation was responsible for the quilt.

Following the service, a complimentary lunch was provided to those that attended

Those who volunteer at ACR Health have been looking for ways to combat the disease for more than 35 years.

Utica Mayor Robert Palmeri and his wife Sue were also there for the service.

"Its a real heart-tugger. It just means that I have a part in telling the community how much everyone means to me who is afflicted. Whether I'm afflicted or not, ,I know someone who is someone else knows someone who is, we're all family and thats why I'm here." said Sue Palmeri.
