Vigil Held in Memory of Newtown Victims

On the evening of Dec. 19, a vigil was held at the Washington Island School in memory of the victims of the tragedy in Newtown, Conn. In attendance were staff, students and families from the school, the Washington Island Fire Department, and the island’s contingent of the DCEMS squad.

There was a moment of silence, singing of inspirational songs, and the old school bell was rung once for each victim. Pictured is the group singing in front of the school.
