Residents of Vernon are standing with their counterparts in Paris.
Lights depicting the French tricolour were set up in trees outside of city hall Saturday after the devastating terrorist attacks in Paris Friday.
“The city is joining with other cities in the growing international recognition of the tragic loss of life in Paris,” states the city.
The attacks left 129 people dead and 352 injured.
“People are shocked by events like this and they want to show their support,” said Mayor Akbal Mund of city staff and residents installing the coloured lights.
“It’s a way of dealing with your feelings.”
