Sandy Hook 5K

  • Love Runs Through Our Community

     To the Editor:

    Thank you to everyone who came together for the Sandy Hook 5K and Kids Run on March 29, 2014! We had roughly 1,200 runners and 200 kids run through the finishing arches at FFH, as well as almost 200 virtual runners participating around the world. The sun shone down on us, and you made the day a huge success!

    Dancers from The Gray School of Irish Dance had a busy St Patrick’s Day season this year. Of course, it’s one of their busiest times of the year, with performances in local parades celebrating their talents, and this year students from the various schools — located in Newtown, Danbury, Ridgefield, and elsewhere — had performances in Danbury, Essex, and Norwich St Patrick’s Day parades, a program at Danbury Library, and other events across the state.
