NEWTOWN - Newtown volunteers have been saving the thousands of letters, cards and pictures of support that flooded into the town after the shooting.

Town officials say they preserved most of them so they can be used in a permanent memorial for the 26 victims.

More than 30 boxes of artwork are being saved for a display in town.

Organizers of the archive say they are working to create a website to display all the letters and pictures.
