The Resiliency Center of Newtown (RCN), within the SCB Building at 153 South Main Street, has announced that it will be open until 7 pm Monday, October 2, in light of the events in Las Vegas on Sunday.
A post on RCN’s Facebook page Monday morning indicated that local residents “having a difficult time dealing with recent events are welcome to gather at our center. We are here for you,” the post continued.
The Associated Press has reported that a shooting Sunday night in Las Vegas has killed at least 50 people and injured at least 400 additional.
A 64-year-old male reportedly opened fire from within the Mandalay Bay Hotel and Casino while Jason Aldean was performing on stage during the outdoor Route 91 Harvest Festival. SWAT officers stormed the hotel room from which he was shooting and found he had killed himself.
The October 1 shootings have become “the deadliest mass shooting in modern U.S. history,” according to AP.
The 501(c)(3) RCN center offers offers trauma-informed services focused on long-term individual and community healing for children and adults impacted by 12/14.
For additional information about The Resiliency Center of Newtown or its available services, contact email@example.com or call 203-364-9750.
President Trump on Monday morning issued a proclamation directing American flags to be lowered to half-staff to honor the victims of the shootings in Las Vegas. Flags are to remain lowered until sunset Friday, October 6.
Accordingly, since no flag should fly higher than the US flag, all other flags — including state, municipal, corporate, or otherwise — should also be lowered during the same duration.
Additional organizations, churches, counselors, etc that plan to offer special services in light of Sunday’s shootings are invited to contact The Newtown Bee, which will add those announcements to this post as they are received. Send details to firstname.lastname@example.org.
