    To the Editor:

  • Sandy Hook Center Spring Clean-Up Planned

    A spring cleanup is scheduled for Sunday, April 7, in Sandy Hook Center. Sandy Hook Organization for Prosperity (SHOP) President Michael Burton said that just like last year, volunteers are welcome to help clean the Pootatuck River banks and roadsides of litter, and “maybe plant some flowers.”

    The Pootatuck runs through the center and behind many of the shops downtown.
