My favorite watering hole, the fountain at The Pleasance on South Main Street, is out of commission for a bit. The main stem has rusted out after these many years, and work is underway to repair it. I’m feeling mighty thirsty these hot summer days (yes, summer officially started on Sunday!) so hopefully, it won’t be long before the fountain is bubbling over again.

Thanks to Botsford Fire Rescue and Merenna Amusements carnivals rides, games and food are once again being offered in the main parking lot at Newtown High School, 12 Berkshire Road, during the annual Spring Carnival.
This year’s event opened on Thursday, April 18, and will run until Saturday, April 20. Hours were 6 to 10 pm on Thursday and Friday, and 2 to 10 pm on Saturday.
On Saturday, a special offer this year will allow Newtown children up to age 12 free rides between 2 and 5 pm, courtesy of the amusement company and Botsford Fire.
