Sandy Hook Promise is delighted to become a leading sponsor of the Great Newtown Reunion taking place July 27 on the campus of Fairfield Hills. The gathering will be a thoughtful, musical and fun-filled day for anyone who has attended Newtown schools, their families, school faculty and staff, town employees, local law enforcement and fire and rescue volunteers.
We are supporting the Reunion in lieu of holding a July 27 “Evening of Promise.” This event promises to benefit the wider Newtown community, with alumni visiting from all over the country to reconnect with their hometown. Please visit our Promise Booth at the Reunion for information and merchandise.

We wish you a happy, meaningful Fourth of July holiday.
Let's remember that what unites us is so much greater than what divides us. We all want to make our communities safer.
