Rye City to Hold Newtown Vigil Sunday, 5pm

Rye Mayor Doug French announced a vigil for those lost in Newtown, Connecticut. The Mayor sent the following email Saturday evening:

"The City of Rye will hold a vigil for those lost in the Newtown, CT school tragedy on our Village Green this Sunday, December 16, 2012 at 5:30 pm.  We ask our local clergy and officials to participate.

Please pass the word to the community, other networks, and other clergy.  Bring candles as well.

Commissioner, if you could do a reverse 911 and a nixle, that would be great.  Laura, if the School could use its listserv and Eleanor, the City listserv as well.

Sally Rogol, if you could arrange for a microphone.  Let's plan on meeting at 5:00 pm to coordinate.  This tragedy hits too close to home, and the City should come together to pay our respects and grieve as community.  Mayor Douglas French

  1. TRUE STORY: A little boy the age of 5 years old is woken up by his Mommy to go to school. He started crying, the Mommy asked him what was wrong, the little boy said; I don’t wanna go to school today Mommy, please can I stay home, Mommy says;NO, now get ready for school, the Dad intervenes and says; what’s the big deal, let him stay home. So the boy wins and stays home….GUESS WHAT DAY THIS WAS AND WHERE THIS LITTLE ANGEL WENT TO SCHOOL!!!!
