Today we honor slain New York State Trooper Nicholas F. Clark by ‘going blue.’
The 29-year-old Troop E member was killed by a suicidal male on July 2nd in Erwin, NY. Troop E covers the counties of Cayuga, Chemung, Livingston, Monroe, Ontario, Schuyler, Seneca, Steuben, Wayne and Yates.
We encourage everyone within reach to “Go Blue” tonight (Friday, July 13th):
- Place and shine a blue light on your porch or in the front of your business tonight 7/13
- Encourage other local businesses to go blue, your neighborhood to go blue, and your towns to go blue
- Share your blue light photos and help spread the word on social media with the hashtag: #SupportTrooperClark
“We’re looking to the power of social media – all platforms – to get the word out and turn our region blue tonight,” said L-Tron COO Gayle DeRose. “Trooper Clark’s sacrifice needs to be marked now, and his memory cemented forever. A blue light gesture tonight, and over the weekend is a small way each of us can start to keep him in our hearts.”
Do you need a blue light?
We are giving them away at L-Tron. Call Elyse at 800-830-9523x 131 or stop by the office and grab yours.
The Blue Light effort began late last week with a Facebook post from the New York State Trooper Police Benevolent Association (PBA) Troop E members requesting residents display blue lights in honor or their fallen comrade.
Please help us turn the Troop E region blue in Trooper Clark’s honor.
Please help by sharing this and displaying blue lights tonight and throughout the weekend.
