To the Editor:
I think that appreciation for the Newtown Police Department has never been as high as it is now after the events of 12/14. Having been thrust into a situation for which there is no adequate preparation and having to live with the aftermath on a day-to-day basis goes way beyond what would be considered normal professional duties.
As a way to thank members of the Newtown Police Department for what they do and to bridge the gap in wages that some members may be experiencing, a spring benefit concert will take place on Saturday, April 6, at the Newtown Congregational Church. Talented musicians from Newtown, New York City and the Boston areas will share family friendly selections of hope and inspiration.
The event will be dinner theater style with the option of bringing a picnic meal at 5:30, concert to start at 7 p.m. Reservations are recommended, 203-270-8915. Suggested donation is $20, $10 for students.
The event is being hosted by Jackie Gaudet, director of the Newtown Music Studio, Sandy Hook. This is a great opportunity to enjoy an evening of music as well as to show support to members of our Newtown Police Department.
