A town-wide community vigil is scheduled for Monday, Dec. 17, at 5 p.m. on Sherman Green. Community and spiritual leaders are being invited to help lead this vigil. According to a statement, “The Fairfield Board of Selectmen understands that it is important that the community have the opportunity to come together as a whole to grieve, as well as to support the survivors of the tragedy and our very own first responders who were there in Newtown Friday.”
