Community gathers to remember the Tarbox Family
With so many people touched so deeply by the tragic loss of four members of the Tarbox family in a May 21 house fire, the need and desire arose to have a place and a time where everyone could gather to celebrate the lives of Nicole, Mya, Evyn and Mariah Tarbox. Family and friends of the Tarbox family organized a community gathering Tuesday evening at Susquehanna Valley High School. An overflow crowd of well-wishers signed memory books, viewed photo and video slideshows of the Tarbox family, witnessed a solemn candle-lighting ceremony and heard the Reverend Curtis Whitman deliver a message of celebration and hope.  Following the ceremony, visitors made their way to the high school gymnasium for a meal, with food and other supplies donated by a number of local businesses.
 
From the family's obituary in the Press and Sun-Bulletin:
The Tarbox family would like to gratefully acknowledge the outpouring of support from friends and community. Words can never express how this community has gone above and beyond to bring comfort and offer help in any way they could. Memorial contributions can be made to the Shawn Tarbox Family, c/o SEFCU, 3460 Vestal Parkway East, Vestal, NY 13850.  To forward condolences please visit www.demunnfh.com.

Our hearts are broken for the members of this family and their many friends throughout our district and beyond.  We will continue to do everything in our power to help the family and support our students and others impacted by this tragedy.
 
A GoFundMe campaign has been established on behalf of the Tarbox family HERE.

Thank you to all in our community for your many expressions of support and sympathy.
