Twenty years ago the New Haven Fire Department opened it's arms, hearts, and space to our family, law enforcement, and the community. They became the hub of the Heidi Allen Command Center, providing more than the obvious conveniences: heat, electricity, running water, indoor plumbing, refreshments, and some place to rest your hat.
Our volunteer firemen and women, and the auxiliary opened their hearts and lives to our family and community. They did this twenty years ago and they are doing it again tomorrow. Their generosity once again overwhelms us and we want you all to know what an amazing organization and town we live in.
Please join us tomorrow, on the 20th anniversary of Heidi Allen's kidnapping, at 6:30 p.m. at the New Haven Fire Barn for a community gathering of hope. We'll have a social hour from 6:30 p.m. - 7:30 p.m., with the candle light vigil at 7:42 p.m.
During the social hour:
*National Center for Missing and Exploited Children: Information on their Take 25 Campaign and things to help parents and kiddos understand safety
*Oswego County Sheriff's Department: finger printing kits for the kiddos, every child should have this done
*Memory Tables: news clippings, photos, buttons, etc from 1994 on display
*Surprise Display Table:
*Photographic Show of over 300 photos taken mostly in the initial days and weeks of the search
*Guest books to sign and leave a note for the family
Remember to BRING YOUR OWN CANDLE, some HOPE, and we'll LIGHT HEIDI'S WAY HOME like we did twenty years ago in this very spot. Thank you everyone!
