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
Mayor, City of Rye"
