  • An Opportunity To Help Neighbors

    To the Editor: Please join us in the community tag/vendor sale to benefit the Ayles family, on Saturday, October 11, from 10 am-2 pm, at 31 Pecks Lane, Newtown.

Now we’d like our community to rally round the Ayleses and join us in this event to help them.

  • Letter Of Endorsement

    To the Editor: For the past year, Kim Fawcett has spent time in our community getting to know us. She has joined us at many community events and spent the summer going door-to-door listening to our needs and concerns. As a voter who doesn’t support a candidate without researching them first, Kim’s record speaks for itself.

  • Letter Of Endorsement

    To the Editor, For nearly 15 years, Mitch Bolinsky has been a force for good in Newtown. I say this not just as a constituent, but with pride because he’s also my father. Over the years, one of the strongest, most positive inspirations in my life has been my father. His integrity and sense of right and wrong are a beacon of light. He has always been there to guide me through any struggle or new chapter with his warm smile, understanding, intelligence, insight and unique sense of humor. No one can make me smile and laugh quite like dad!

His door is always open, and he makes time regardless — for events or issues, never too big or too small.

  • A Fall Festival In The Village

    To the Editor: I’d like to invite the Newtown community to participate in the 4th Annual Passport to Sandy Hook event on Saturday, October 11th anytime from 11 am – 4 pm (rain or shine). This event creates a great opportunity for you to visit over 30 local businesses, enjoy the new streetscape, the beautiful Glen and river of Sandy Hook Village and even a chance to win $2,000 in prizes while getting a passport stamped. This is a community event for families of all sizes not to miss. There will be activities for both children and adults to enjoy such as a bouncy house, arts & craft activities, live music, dance performances, free food and refreshments, discounts and samples. It’s a fall festival in the village. Don’t forget to bring a donation for the FAITH Food Pantry as they prepare inventory for the holiday season when families need help the most.

  • Letter Of Endorsement

    To the Editor: Mitch Bolinsky has my vote for State Representative on November 4th. The 2014 CT General Assembly regular session ran from February to May this year. But legislating is only part of the job for Mitch. On a daily basis, Mitch continues to work with and for his constituents, solving problems and getting results.
