Howell Holiday Lights to Darken in Tribute to CT Shooting Victims

Township lights to dim on Wednesday

Following last week's Shooting in Newtown, CT the Howell Administration announced that they will be honoring the victims and are asking residents and neighboring towns to do the same. 

From Wednesday night until Thursday night all the holiday lights in town will be turned off. In an announcement on the township's website the administration said the gesture is being made, "In support and unity and to show the residents of the community of Newtown, Connecticut that they are not alone in the darkness that they must endure this holiday season."

Township residents are also being asked to turn their lights off that night in a sign of support and Township Manager Helene Schlegel said she will be reaching out to other towns to take part as well. "Those affected by this tragedy will remain in our hearts and prayers throughout this holiday season and beyond," the announcement added.

The same will be done at my home. R.I.P. to the sweet angels and their heroic Teachers.

You turn lights on and light candles....you don't turn Christmas lights off, "THE KIDS DON'T WANT Christmas/holiday LIGHTS TURNED OFF" This is a morbid concept. Light a candle on your front stoop!!!!
