Seymour proclaims Friday, Oct. 24 as Nina Poeta Day

SEYMOUR >> The Board of Selectmen on Tuesday unanimously approved a proclamation, naming Friday, Oct. 24 as Nina Poeta Day. Nina, 17, is a Seymour High School cheerleader battling an inoperable brain tumor. The community has rallied around Nina since she first learned of her diagnosis in November 2013. Numerous fundraisers, from cut-a-thons to craft fairs, have been held to help the family with medical bills and pink t-shirts emblazoned with 'Keep Calm and Nina Strong' were created, and can be seen throughout the community and beyond, during football games and other events. Community prayer events have also been held, with residents banding together to show Nina how much they love and support her.
On Friday, everyone is being asked to wear something pink and gray to show their support for Nina Poeta Day.
