Over One-Thousand Texomans Sign Banner for Newtown Connecticut

Sandy Hook Elementary, Newtown Connecticut Banner Signing - Wichita FallsLike the rest of the country, Texomans were hit hard by the tragedy that transpired last Friday at Sandy Hook elementary school in Newtown, Connecticut.  The unimaginable incident that claimed the lives of 26 people, including 20 first graders had left many wanting to send condolences and words of encouragement to the small northeastern community.

Townsquare Media, wanted to do just that.  Upon learning of the shooting on Friday, we contacted our partners at Hudson Blueprint to see if it would be possible to have a giant banner made that we could take out and let people sign and write condolences on.  The company came through, particularly Paul Groves, who volunteered to stay late on Friday and to come in on Saturday, his off day, to complete the banner.

From noon to 4:30, Townsquare Media radio stations set the banner up at Wal-Mart on Lawrence Rd. allowing anyone who wanted to sign it, and offer condolences could do just that.  Response was overwhelming. In those 4 hours, over 1,000 Texomans signed the banner.  The banner is being sent to Sandy Hook Elementary in Newtown, Connecticut as of today.  We all hope that it can serve as a small token of hope during this very dark time for those affected by this tragedy.  God Bless Newtown and Sandy Hook Elementary.
