Meet The Cramers: A Husband And Wife Team Dedicated To Each Other, And Their Hometown

Al Cramer said people sometimes ask him what the secret to a long marriage is. He and his wife, Coke — likely one of Newtown’s longest-tenured couples — tied the knot 66 years ago. “The secret is... broad range of interests,” Mr Cramer said while sitting with his wife in their Partridge Lane home, a house full of reminders of so many interests, notably in photos from their trips together.

Volunteers Keep The Youth Football & Cheer Program Going Strong

Completely volunteer-run, the Newtown Youth Football & Cheer organization relies on time given by parents on and off the practice and game fields. From the moms and dads who coach the cheerleaders and football players to the so-called team moms who do seemingly a bit of everything to make the season go smoothly, it is quite a team effort from the sidelines.
