After years of collaboration, the Arlington Ministerial Association will be staging the Senior Vespers service this year without active participation from the Arlington school district.

"There was some concern by organizers that the event was not as focused on the spiritual aspect as it could be because of its association with the school district," said Veronica Sopher, public information director for the school district. "We still support our kids who want to participate."
