Our Mission:

The mission of the Permanent Memorial Commission is to make a recommendation to the Board of Selectman for a Permanent Memorial that remembers, honors and celebrates those 26 who died as a result of the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting and serves to provide comfort to those who loved and were touched by them. 

About Us:

Our Commission was appointed and assembled in September of 2013 by the Newtown Board of Selectmen, in an effort to gather information and make a recommendation for a permanent memorial in our community.
