Newtown residents and visitors to Sandy Hook have undoubtedly noticed recent improvements in the business district. Phase II of the new streetscape, with sidewalks, pedestrian-oriented lighting and amenities, was recently completed, enhancing the visual impression and creating a more enjoyable and walkable environment.
The Sandy Hook Organization for Prosperity (SHOP) is looking for a marketing and communications professional to implement its new Sandy Hook Community Branding Campaign. The organization’s new “brand steward” will utilize the new community brand to create marketing pieces for Sandy Hook Village businesses and incorporate the brand identity with the village and SHOP events.
On behalf of The Sandy Hook Organization for Prosperity (SHOP), I would like to thank all who attended our 12th Annual Christmas Tree Lighting. This year, the Sandy Hook community gathered to light our traditional tree, and then joined together in lighting Sandy Hook’s new tree just across the street! From the snow flurries outside Sandy Hook Hair Co. to 3D glasses, from Santa’s visit to face painting, it was a festive night in Sandy Hook with our biggest crowd ever!
On behalf of the Sandy Hook Organization for Prosperity (S.H.O.P.), and the Passport Committee, I would like to thank everyone who attended our third annual Passport to Sandy Hook. This year we had the largest crowd ever.
Thank you to all of the merchants who participated in this event. Thank you to our sponsors, Newtown Savings Bank and Andy Sachs. These sponsorships continue to allow us to bring these events to the public free of charge.
The Sandy Hook Organization for Prosperity (SHOP) will present the Third Annual Passport to Sandy Hook on Saturday, October 12, from 11 am to 4 pm. More than 30 merchants have contributed toward this year’s prize packages.
To be eligible to win one of the three prize packages, valued at a total of $3,500, visitors must have their passports stamped at all 32 participating locations. Locations are within walking distance of the Church Hill Road-Glen Road-Riverside Road-Washington Avenue intersection.
Raising glasses in a champagne toast on Friday, October 4, officials and residents seated along a decorative stone wall and standing on a new stamped concrete walkway on the corner of Riverside Road and Washington Avenue cheered as antique-style lampposts suddenly lit.
Flipping a switch in a circuit box across from the intersection, First Selectman Pat Llodra watched the lamps light, then quickly returned to the crowd for a sip of champagne. Friday celebrated the completion of Phase II streetscape in Sandy Hook Center.
As a member of the Sandy Hook Volunteer Fire and Rescue Company, I’d like you to join us for a very special event on Saturday. Last year’s Passport to Sandy Hook was a great day and we are looking forward to this year’s being bigger and better!
Passport to Sandy Hook will feature all of the great shopping and dining that Sandy Hook has to offer – plus great discounts and giveaways, live music, a bounce house, face painting and more!
