In Memoriam

February 22nd 2006 -  December 14th 2012

On December 14th, 2012, little Charlotte Bacon was among 20 children killed in the Newtown, CT school massacre. Charlotte was daughter to Orono High School graduate JoAnne aka JoJo (Hagen) Bacon and her husband Joel, and sister to Guy.

This page was established This fund was established by the OHS Alumni as a memorial fund for the Bacon family to use as they wish.  Anyone is welcome to contribute to this fund. Please use the button on the right sidebar titled Charlotte Bacon Memorial Fund. These funds are being collected by (me) Leah (Lundgren) Spring and will be transferred to the Bacon family. The button will close as soon as we reach our goal, or January 14th, whichever comes first.

Edit: 4300 people have visited this page since it was created four days ago. We have set a goal of $5200 for this fundraiser. If the next 270 people contribute $10 each, we will reach our goal!

A huge thank you to all of those who contributed to the floral fund. A huge wreath was delivered to the church made with red and blue flowers (Orono High School colors) and green and white flowers (Sandy Hook Elementary school colors.) We also sent a plant to the home as well as a cute bear with a plant for Charlotte's brother Guy.

*note* It can take up to 24 hours for payments to show on the chipin buttons.
