    The Heritage Preservation Trust of Newtown, Inc was formed July 27 in a historic action. In less than an hour, with about 30 persons present, incorporation papers and by-laws were ratified and an executive board of directors was elected. The trust was set up to assure the preservation of the 180-year-old meeting house at the head of Church Hill Road.

    The Parks and Rec Commission has decided to continue keeping Dickinson Park open late on weekend nights, for teenagers to use as a hangout through Labor Day weekend, provided there continues to be no problems at the park on those nights. The decision came after Park and Rec Director Barbara Kasbarian informed commission members that there have been no problems during the first three weekends teens have used the park on weekend nights.

    The long-awaited steeple for the new Congregational Church arrived last week, but alas, it was the wrong color. In what was described as a comedy of errors, a mismatch of colors stalled the erection which has already been put off several times because of bad weather. It is hoped to have the correct steeple in place in six weeks or so according to Rod Gulick, coordinator of the building program. Meanwhile, the church is moving toward an expected first service in the church, June 19.
