Arts Festival

  • The Top of the Mountain

    This curious kitty has heard back from another reader of our “Way We Were” column, regarding the photo of two boys near the edge of a body of water, which ran in the August 8 issue of The Newtown Bee. Jacquie Dachenhausen had contacted me last month, saying she felt fairly certain the boys were her son and his best friend. Gail and Chuck Luf, though, also believe that they know the boys. “I think it’s my son, Josh, and James Barrett, a Fresh Air guest we had many years,” says Gail.

  • 2013 Arts Festival Draws A Crowd To Fairfield Hills

    Following Saturday’s rain and winds that interrupted the second annual Newtown Arts Festival at Fairfield Hills, Sunday’s sunshine warmed a large crowd on a brisk fall day.

    More news has arrived from America Responds With Love, the charity organization that took on multiple pallets of stuffed animals donated to Newtown after 12/14, for distribution to others in need. You might remember that Richard McDonough of America Responds reported in July that 200 of the stuffed pillows and animals had been provided to Aurora, Colo., for healing purposes. Now Aurora is paying it forward, donating 100 of the stuffed animals to Cañon City, Colo., as that town recovers from devastating springtime fires.
