For about 20 years, local civic groups and town agencies have had their colorful banners posted by the town above Queen Street, near Newtown Middle School, to promote various nonprofit events that are open to the public.

During a routine report to her board June 15, First Selectman Pat Llodra said she wants an ad-hoc panel assessing possible future use or repurposing of several public buildings to be prepared to consider Hawley School, if or when the Board of Education determines that facility will be closed.
When organizers of the Newtown Car Show began working on this year’s event, they decided to plan for 250 cars. When the first public announcement of the show was made in January, registration was nearly full.
