Local ceramic shop asking for children to help in memorial to Sandy Hook shooting victims
Angels waiting to be painted by the parish's children.
Morrow has created 27 angel figurines to commemorate each of the shooters victims.
“I am asking all the children in our community to give a personal touch to show their love and prayers for those lost their lives,” Morrow said. “My goal is to not have any white spot left and then I am going to fire them. They are going to put their finger in paint and if they don’t want to they can use a small sponge or stamp it.”
Morrow said her goal is to show the support for victims of the tragedy.
“You’ve got to do something back,” she said. “We’ve got to support the other children and give a little. I don’t think if something like that happened to me that money would give any satisfaction.”
The reason behind getting the parish’s children involved Morrow said is to teach them the gravity of the situation.
“They are our little angels and I want them to be aware of passing on the love and share their prayers and they can pass something on. It doesn’t have to be material things. I try to teach my kids the same thing. It’s a gesture,” Morrow said.
Children who would like to participate are asked to come to the ceramic shop located at 124 Longview Drive in Destrehan to put their mark on the figurines.
“I will pack them and send them directly to the Sandy Hook Elementary School,” Morrow said. “I will be asking them to display them at the school to show them how much we support them during this terrible tragedy.”
The event is ongoing today Monday, Dec. 17 through Wednesday, Dec. 19 from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m.

$500 Bunge gift cards on hold until construction date set - 630 views
In order to ease the concerns of residents who live near Bunge North America in Destrehan, the grain elevator promised $500 gift cards to 100 residents if the St. Charles Parish Council approved a zoning change that would pave the way for a $50 million construction project. The council gave Bunge the OK in October, but the gift cards have yet to materialize.
