  • The giant snowflakes and banner Girl Scout Service Unit 13 made for the Middletown Holiday Parade have arrived in Connecticut.
    The decorations will be a part of the new school being set up for the Sandy Hook Elementary School students, said Kai DuBose, organizer for Service Unit 13 of the Chesapeake Bay Girl Scouts.
    "The Sandy Hook PTA made a request for snowflakes to be sent and we thought our giant snowflakes would be perfect," DuBose said. " The school was overjoyed at our offer."
    The banner shares the exact theme the new school is adopting, which DuBose said is "No Two Alike."
    "We were THRILLED to be able to do this and like the rest of the nation are heartbroken by the loss of life in the Sandy Hook shooting," she said.
    Of the 12 little girls killed in the tragic shooting, eight were Girl Scout daisies, she said.
