Folks in the Brewster Hill neighborhood came together yesterday for an intimate and meaningful community event. Here is what organizers said about it:
"The event was originally planned as a sign of peace and unity among our neighbors, but after the tragedy we all experienced in neighboring Newtown, CT, we are now emphasizing the need for peace this Christmas and in the New Year. The event is called 'Peace and Lights On The Hill.' We have more than 30 families that will be lighting luminaries in front of their homes on Christmas Eve night from 6 p.m. to midnight. In honor of those lost, please join with us in showing a sign of peace throughout Brewster and Southeast."
