Submit Photos Of ‘Life Now’ For Possible Publication



Text Size

Life may feel different this summer, but we know residents are still making memories. The Newtown Bee is asking local residents to submit photos and descriptions of their summer life, whether abroad or at home. Submissions will run as space allows in an upcoming edition.

This will be an ongoing featured item in the pages of The Newtown Bee for the foreseeable future. The local newspaper has been chronicling town happenings since 1877, and, with the help of residents, we hope to capture today’s changing world through these submitted images.

The deadline to submit photos for each week’s paper is each Wednesday at noon. To submit a photo, e-mail the image to reporter Eliza Hallabeck, eliza@thebee.com, with a brief description, including the names of those pictured.

Friends Gather For National Event

According to Newtown resident Carol Strong, her husband George Strong and friends Bill Muska of Westport, Ted Ristau of Norwalk, and Jim Borbas of Prospect met at Newtown Municipal Center on June 20 for National Drive Your Ford V8 Day. A photo of the four with their cars was submitted for publication.

The gathered friends each brought their own picnic lunch and circled chairs while observing social distancing “under a magnificent oak tree near” Newtown Municipal Center on the Fairfield Hills campus, according to the e-mail sent with the photo.

“We had a beautiful day for driving our V8s!” Carol Strong wrote in the e-mail. “The CT Ford V8 Club #131 is a local chapter of the National Early Ford V8 Club of America. The National Ford V8 Club promotes the preservation and restoration of early Ford vehicles from 1932 to 1953.”
