So much has changed about our quaint Sandy Hook village since last year’s Passport to Sandy Hook event – it is evident in the “We Are Sandy Hook. We Choose Love” signs in shop windows and the green ribbons and magnets on cars driving through. Sandy Hook looks different this year too – with new sidewalks, crosswalks, lights and landscaping. It has truly been a year of change for our community.
I’m looking forward to the 3rd annual Passport to Sandy Hook. It will be great to spend the day there listening to music, lots of great places to eat and shopping. I plan on adding to my bling collection from Sabrina’s Style and when my passport is completely stamped enter it into the raffle!
Last week I sent an email to friends inviting them to SHOP's Passport to Sandy Hook event. After a few people commented on it, I decided to share that email with all of you – inviting you to an event that truly celebrates our incredible community.
Please join me on Saturday, October 12 from 11 am to 4 pm in Sandy Hook Center for the Passport event. Visit all our local businesses and sign up to win one of the fantastic prize packages. Sandy Hook Center has never looked better! The continuation of the new sidewalks and lighting onto Washington Avenue, and the new flower boxes all add to the small town Connecticut feel that makes it such a special place.
Looking to enhance commercial traffic and to spur business retention and growth in Sandy Hook center, a local business support group is working with Newtown’s Community and Economic Development Director and the Connecticut Main Street agency establishing a multifaceted project designed to spur economic recovery to the village center.
