East Greenwich has a opportunity to send a big gift to the people of Newtown, Conn., tomorrow when we gather at the high school at 12 noon for a giant group photo. We will stand in the shape of a heart and photographer Jeff Stevens will take the photo from atop an EGFD ladder truck!
The idea came to EG resident (and IT manager for the Town) Wendy Schmidle, who's husband grew up in Newtown. She thought this would be a way for all of us to show Newtown that we are thinking of them. If you'd like to wear green and white, the school colors of Sandy Hook Elementary, go for it!
So, please, take a bit of your Sunday and come on over to the EGHS. We will try to move quickly so everyone can quickly resume their shopping, prepping, or football watching (the Patriots play at 1 p.m.). Bring your family, neighbors, friends. You don't have to LIVE in East Greenwich to be a part of the photo.
One note: Consider walking to the high school if you can, or park at Meadowbrook Farms.
