BROADALBIN - People lined Main Street on Thursday night for an informal vigil for the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting victims, who include an educator who had a house and relatives in the area.
People joined hands in front of the First Presbyterian Church.
The vigil remembered the 26 people who lost their lives in last Friday's tragedy in Newtown, Conn., where a gunman, Adam Lanza, walked into Sandy Hook Elementary School and opened fire, killing children and adults.
