Coming Up: Candlelight Memorial in Mamaroneck to NYPD Cops- Dec. 22

from Village of Mamaroneck Mayor Norman Rosenblum:

There will be a candlelight memorial service tonight , December 22, 2014, 7:00 PM at the memorial in front of the Village of Mamaroneck Police station on Prospect Ave. Bring a candle to light and if you choose wear blue … This will be a silent respect to the two slain NYPD officers and also an expression of support for all uniformed police officers who put their lives on the line every day.  There will be no speeches or comments by pubic officials … All attending may certainly share their thoughts and emotions to one another regarding this execution of uniformed police officers and the threat to one’s presumed sense of safety in our streets.
