From the Connecticut Yankee Council Webpage:
Our thoughts and prayers go out to all the families in Newtown today and in the difficult days to come. We are heartbroken about this terrible tragedy. We are very saddened to share that our Scouting family has been struck by this tragedy.
Lost from Pack 170 are:
Cub Scouts Chase Kowalski and Benjamin Wheeler.
Benjamin’s parents Francine and David Wheeler are den leaders.
Also lost are the siblings of Cubs in Pack 170: Caroline Previdi, Catherine Hubbard, Dylan Hockley.
From Pack 170, Tiger Cub leader Peter Baressi, who lost the two, is a first responder for Sandy Hook Fire. He stayed with the families throughout this terrible ordeal.
Please send prayers to these families and the pack in this time of sadness.
