Howard County has given the people of Newtown a gift—a dogwood tree from Howard County’s “Blossom’s of Hope” program – which government officials called a “gesture of sympathy and solidarity.”
The tree was delivered to Newtown recently by a Howard County resident – who wishes to remain anonymous – who grew up in Newtown and attended Sandy Hook Elementary School.
Howard County Executive Ken Ulman has proclaimed this week “Newtown Observance Week” in Howard County.
