Editor: I’m Going on Vacation

Dear readers:

I’ll be off for two weeks starting Monday, Aug. 6, including one week of a “staycation” that will include downtime at Zumbach’s and leisurely shopping excursions to Franco’s and Walter Stewart’s, among other places.

There’s no Community Coffee this month, but we’ll resume our get-together at New Canaan Library on Thursday, Sept. 6. Our daily newsletter will continue to run through these two weeks, with plenty of content supplied by our super summer intern, Catherine Gorey.

Until Aug. 20, please send all news tips, letters, obituaries and announcements to guest editor Chandra Johnson-Greene, at cjgreene1220@gmail.com.

Thank you so much for reading NewCanaanite.com.

This has been a banner year for the site, highlighted by the Forum on Public Buildings in April—presented in partnership with the town, New Canaan Historical Society and New Canaan Preservation Alliance—milestones such as 5,000 articles and 5 million pageviews and some great coverage by the hyperlocal news industry. Traffic so far this year is up 9.5 percent over 2017.
