  • Glow Sticks To Light Up The Holiday Scene

    Diana Johnson, Amy Mangold, John Moore, and Janet Woycik, four members of the Ram Pasture Tree Lighting Committee, met Tuesday morning, October 21, to discuss the changeover from open flame candles to an alternate light source for the nearly 2,000 luminarias that light the town during the annual celebration.

    This year, said Ms Johnson, glow sticks will glimmer from within the packages lining Main Street, Glover Avenue, and all around Ram Pasture and Hawley Pond, December 5.

Booth Library speaks to the confidence placed in the woman chosen as the newest leader of the local library.

    To the Editor:

    We have lived in Newtown since 1968, raised two children here, and I taught 33 years in our school system. The Cyrenius Booth Library has been a constant source of learning, fine reading, pleasure and friendship. Now that my husband and I are retired, the library seems like an extension of our home.
