Memorial Walkway Tom Draper MD  203-770-8477

To support the construction of a walkway from Sandy Hook to the flagpole to reflect the unity of our community and continuing remembrance and shared loss. “The Children’s Walkway will creat those random serendipitous moments where people recognize each other as neighbors and friends. We are no longer strangers but villagers looking out for one another, particularly the young, old and frail. A wide, well-built walkway will connect churches, schools and parks with our major areas of commerce that will encourage physical activity and unify our community.
