• Newtown’s Embrace Of Hazel And Bezalel

    To the Editor,

    We just wanted to take a moment to extend our family’s gratitude to the Newtown Community for how warmly they welcomed our house guests, Hazel Alquilos and her two year-old son, Bezalel (“Bez”).  Hazel and Bez came to Newtown for life saving heart surgery at Connecticut Children’s Medical Center sponsored by Gift of Life International in partnership with the Newtown Rotary Club.

  • The Top of the Mountain

    Longtime Newtown resident Pete Samoskevich was surprised on Saturday by his family and friends with a celebration of his 80th birthday. Pete, known best around town on the ball diamonds and working at Sunoco, continues to be a presence in town, entertaining anyone who will talk with him. Happy Birthday, Petey!

  • A Great Day For Pancakes

    To the Editor:

    The Newtown Rotary Club would like to thank all the people who came out to support our 53rd Annual Pancake Day.  It was a wonderful event to celebrate the holiday season with family and friends enjoying the best pancakes and sausages in town!
