A candlelight vigil in support of removing Lakeland’s Confederate monument drew about 50 people to Munn Park Sunday night, as well as a half-dozen counter protestors. The gathering was organized by members of the Lakeland Unitarian Universalist Fellowship, and organizers said they plan to return each Sunday at 7 p.m. until the monument is removed from the center of the downtown park.
