Arlington is offering residents a chance to send their condolences to Boston and the family of late Arlington resident and Medford native Krystle Campbell, who was killed in the Boston Marathon explosions Monday.
In a statement released Thursday afternoon, Arlington Town Manager Adam Chapdelaine said the town and its Board of Selectmen are making two books of condolences available for residents to sign in the main lobby of Town Hall through the first night of Town Meeting on Monday.
One of the books will be sent to Campbell's family and the second will be sent to the City of Boston.
“We would like to extend our heartfelt sympathies to those who have been affected by the tragedy at the Boston Marathon, especially the family and friends of Arlington resident and Medford native, Krystle Campbell,” Chapdelaine said.
Campbell had moved to Arlington about a year ago and had been working Jimmy’s Steer House in Arlington as an assistant dining room manager for about six months. She also worked at several of the restaurant’s other locations.
Selectmen are inviting members of the community to sign the books as a gesture for all those impacted by the attack on the marathon.
Chapdelaine also said the town would like to commend the work of the first responders and spectators on the scene of the bombing, and there "quick and courageous actions" that saved many lives.
"Their cooperation and compassion reminds us of the importance of community," Chapdelaine said.
Arlington Police have been sending off-duty officers to assist investigation efforts in Boston since Monday, according to the town.
