I attended the public meeting on June 4th at the NHS lecture hall where Svigals + Partners unveiled their ostentatious plans for the new SHS. I was truly disheartened by the presentation, sitting for almost an hour while the project lead tried to explain how Sandy Hook got its’ name, how we are all part of the Earth and that we are all part of the water in her best attempt to sell us their next colossal boondoggle.
I would like to thank everyone that attended our 3rd annual wine tasting on June 14th at the Sandy Hook Firehouse. We had a great turnout and it was a very successful event. We want to thank the Sandy Hook Volunteer Fire and Rescue Co. for allowing us to use their incredible space once again this year.
This year’s 2014 Great Pootatuck Duck Race on May 24 drew a bustling crowd. Parents and children filled the river’s banks in Sandy Hook Center, lining fences along the water near The Foundry, and across the rushing current, filled the lot behind Porco’s Karate Academy on Church Hill Road.
