Remembering a Tragic Day in Aurora

Hi this is Leslie Harris, and next Saturday the 15th marks the one-year anniversary of the tragedy at The Henry Pratt Company in Aurora, when an ex-employee open fired, leaving 5 people dead. (6 including the shooter)

There is now a new exhibit at the Aurora Historical Society, commemorating those who we lost that day. The exhibit features the five hand – made crosses, the memorabilia left at the factory gates by well-wishers, and items sent to the Aurora Police Department from First Responders around the country, as 5 police officers were also injured.

The exhibit runs now through February 29th at the museum’s David L Pierce Art and History Center, 20 E. Downers Place in Aurora. The museum is open Wednesday through Saturday from noon to 4:00. Admission is free, however donations are greatly appreciated.
