    To the Editor:

    There simply aren't enough words to express our gratitude to all who helped make Catherine's Butterfly Party a success on Saturday, June 6. Over 2,000 people attended along with a wonderful array of vendors, sponsors, rescue organizations and educational groups. We are so grateful to the community for supporting this event and helping us build a sanctuary of peace and compassion for all creatures, great and small.

    Get out your flags, slice the watermelon, and fire up the grill — the Fourth of July is just over the horizon. And as exciting as fireworks can be, the Connecticut Department of Safety reminds us that the only legal fireworks items in Connecticut are sparklers.
