Christmas trees set up in Kearny Mesa in honor of Newtown victims

Christmas trees representing the victims of the
Newtown, Conn., school massacre will be set up in Kearny Mesa Thursday and San
Diegans will be invited to decorate them and attend a lighting ceremony.

The 20 miniature and six full-sized trees represent the children and
adults killed last Friday.

San Diegans can decorate the trees throughout the day and leave notes or
letters, according to organizers of the event. The messages and mementos will
be mailed to Newtown.

A lighting ceremony is scheduled for 5:30 p.m on Thursday.

The trees will be set up on the front lawn of the San Diego Association
of Realtors building at 4845 Ronson Court in Kearny Mesa.

Sponsoring organizations include the SDAR, the San Diego Unified School
District, San Diego Police Officers Association, San Diego Regional Chamber of
Commerce, South Bay Family YMCA, Point Loma Nazarene University and STAR/PAL.
