Some of you may know that for many years, I was the Chairman of the Board of the United Way of Western Connecticut which includes the Town of Newtown where the unbelievable occurred on Friday. Today, we grieve with our friends, colleagues, co-workers and their families – all trying to come to grips with a loss that cannot be explained. The First County Bank Foundation, Cheryl and I have made a donation to the Sandy Hook School Support Fund created jointly by the United Way and my colleagues at the Newtown Savings Bank. I urge you to do the same. Those kids belong to all of us and at this moment we are one family, united in our sorrow.
