Newtown’s Team 26 cyclers will ride again this year, albeit to a new destination: the Tree of Life Synagogue in Pittsburgh, Penn., where on October 27, 2018, a lone gunman killed 11 people and injured seven others. The riders will depart from Trinity Episcopal Church on Friday, April 26, following an 8 am nondenominational service and speaking program. The public is invited to attend, according to ride organizer and Sandy Hook resident Monte Frank.

Nettleton Sees TLC On ‘Day Of Service’

Eversource and Lewis Tree Service members volunteered during a Day of Service, April 12. The group spent the morning clearing overgrowth and invasives at Nettleton Preserve on Castle Hill Road and spent their lunch break at Holcombe Hill Preserve at 55 Great Hill Road, which offers panoramic views from the gazebo. The Day of Service volunteers provided their help to the Newtown Forest Association (NFA), which owns the two properties. Among those gathered were NFA President Bob Eckenrode, center leaning on the post; NFA member Harvey Pessin, second from left; and Dave Boyle with Lewis Tree Service. (Bee Photo, Bobowick)
