Local Artist David Merrill stands beside a colorful heart he helped design for Families United in Newtown (FUN), which was founded by resident Linda Jones, right, in memory of her late son, Tyler. FUN will present a night of music, Friday, May 9, at 7 pm, at Newtown Congregational Church, 14 West Street. Mr Merrill will be honored at the event during the unveiling of the “traveling heart” that was handmade by special needs students and painted by the accomplished artist. The heart will go on display at C.H. Booth Library following the concert, alerting patrons to the resources available at the library’s “Autism Nook.” Admission to the concert is free, but FUN will be collecting donations at the door for continued support of the program and autism awareness. Light refreshments will be served.
