Paramus will be joining other municipalities throughout New Jersey, and asking all residents to join in support and unity and to show the residents of Newtown, Connecticut that they are not alone in the darkness that they must endure this holiday season and Paramus will not light the holiday displays at the municipal complex on the night of Wednesday, December 19th.
On behalf of the Mayor & Council, we urge all residents to join in this symbolic display of sympathy by keeping all holiday decorations off on the night of December 19th.
While we will resume our normal lighting of the displays on Thursday, December 20th, the victims, their families, and those affected by this tragedy will remain in our hearts and prayers throughout this holiday season and beyond.
