Orono resident Kathy Jordan received the below e-mail from her cousin, Mary, who lives in Connecticut. Lake Minnetonka residents interested in helping to make snowflakes for the children of Newtown, CT, can e-mail Kathy or write to Jay.Corn@Patch.com for instructions on how to contribute.
I was wondering if you could help me out. The National PTA has suggested contributing paper snowflakes to put in the new school for the Sandy Hook students when they start back in January.
They would like to create a Winter Wonderland for the kids. Could you guys each make a snowflake and send them to me? I would like to send a blizzard to Newtown!
They are due by the 10th of January, so whenever you can get them to me, that would be great. If you'd like you pass this message along, the more snowflakes the better.
Thanks so much,
