Alamance County, NC -- As a sign of solidarity, children here in the Triad cut out snowflakes to hang in the halls of the new Sandy Hook Elementary school. It was a community service project at Guilford Middle School the week after the shooting.
Now, home school students in Alamance County are making snowflakes of their own.
Karen Carrouth, Volunteer Coordinator at the Alamance Arts Council said, "Think about snowflakes, each one is different, like each of our children, they are all different and we have an opportunity to hug our children, to be thankful for the lives that we have and remember the lives that we lost.
Sandy Hook School said they've been overwhelmed by the snowflakes, and don't need any more. So the Alamance Arts Council will make a collage of pictures showing their snowflakes, and send the picture and a card to Newtown. The snowflakes themselves will then go on display in public places all around Alamance County.
You can also be part of the Snowflake Project. You can make snowflakes of your own this Saturday, from 11:00 am - 3:00 pm at the Captain White House. The address is 213 South Main Street in Graham.
