We have made beautiful snowflakes today at the Southborough Public Library! Thanks to all the participants. 12/29/2012
These snowflakes were made by approximately 55 children and adults of Southborough in response to the tragedy at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, CT. The Connecticut PTSA was looking for handmade snowflakes to decorate the students' new school in Monroe, CT when they returned to class in January. In late December, Bigelow Center for the Arts, in conjunction with the Southborough Library, held a snowflake-making workshop during which over 100 snowflakes were created. In addition, families made snowflakes at home and dropped them off at either the Bigelow Center or the Library, so many snowflakes were collected.
However, immediately after the snowflake workshop was held, the PTSA stopped the project, after being overwhelmed with snowflake donations coming in from all over the country, and Southborough's snowflakes were left needing a home. Fortunately, they have found several homes throughout the local area, and can be viewed at the Stop and Shop in Westborough, Acacia Functions in Westborough, and the Realty Direct MetroWest Office. All are handmade, and just like actual snowflakes, each one is unique.

When I heard about the bombs going off at the Boston Marathon, I was devastated. I immediately thought about how terrible the world has become, and I asked myself, 'where was the love?' I realize now that all the love and support was there to help those in need. That is what my mural is portraying; not the horrifying trauma, or the news, or anything like that. My mural is showing the love and trust that many gave to the victims, and that love and trust is all we need in this world to heal it. Avery M.
