Candlelight Vigil

August 27, 2019

Newfield Community:

This Saturday, August 31st ,at 7:30pm, Newfield High School will host a candlelight vigil in memory of Newfield’s own, Jenna Perez, on the football field. I am asking for the community’s help in donating battery powered candles for the event as well as green, helium-filled balloons (to be anchored not released), Jenna’s favorite color. Please feel free to drop candle donations off at the main office of Newfield High School, which is open until 3:00 this week, through Friday. If donating helium-filled balloons, they can be brought to the vigil Saturday evening. I’m so proud of our Newfield Community in all that is being done in remembrance of Jenna and in support of her sister Janell, their family and friends. I hope to see you Saturday night to mourn the loss of Jenna, and to celebrate the warm-hearted spirit she exuded every day.

Thank you.
