New Haven will toll bells for Newtown





NEW HAVEN  — As Gov. Dannel Malloy signed a proclamation declaring Dec. 21, a “Day of Mourning” in the state, New Haven will participate in what is expected to be a state-wide moment of silence at 9:30 a.m., according to a statement.
"The moment of science will then be followed by the ringing of City Hall's bells twenty-six times in honor of each life lost last Friday at Sandy Hook Elementary," the statement said.

Mayor John DeStefano Jr. "has also set-up a one-time, voluntary payroll deduction for city employees to contribute to charities serving the families of the victims of the tragedy in Newtown. New Haven remains resolute in the effort at both the federal and state levels lobbying for stricter gun laws," the statement said.
