There has been a change of venue for Friday night’s family ice skating party. Instead of the temporary rink at Fairfield Hills, the February 7 event has been moved to the Dickinson Park pavilion rink... weather permitting (it’s been one of those weeks, after all.) There is still time to sign up for the event, which will run from 6:30 to 9:30 pm. DJ Kevin Koschel will provide the music, and there will be a small bonfire. There is no charge, but reservations are requested so that organizers know how much hot chocolate will be needed.

The permanent memorial to the lives lost April 20, 1999, at Columbine High School in Colorado was created with the participation of the Columbine school community and the efforts of an original group of 100 people, according to Doug Ireland, division chief for the Littleton (Colo.) Fire Rescue. It was Chief Ireland who cautioned the Newtown community in January 2013 that a permanent memorial to 12/14 would be “a slow process,” noting that it was eight years before the Columbine memorial was completed.

She will be presenting an introductory workshop, through her Parem Hwah Asian Brushwork company, in the basic techniques of Chinese and Korean style brushwork painting.
