Newtown Continuing Education announced it has limited openings in a number of classes being offered this autumn season.

One class begins this week, while the others are scheduled to begin early next month.
A scenic 50-mile ride through late September weather awaits motorcycle riders and supporters at the 2014 Firehouse Ride. The route, which meanders through surrounding towns, starting and ending at 71 South Main Street in Newtown, is an annual fundraiser for Newtown Hook and Ladder Fire Co #1, which is raising funds for a new firehouse.
