Coffee’s on for Thursday

Join fellow residents and NewCanaanite.com editor Michael Dinan for the monthly Community Coffee, to be held 8:30 to 9:30 a.m. Thursday, Feb. 1 in the Jim & Dede Bartlett Auditorium at New Canaan Library. The Coffee is presented in partnership with the library, and the brew is supplied by Zumbach’s Gourmet Coffee (thank you, Doug). The free, public coffee is a group conversation about what’s happening around town, moderated by Dinan. Topics come from attendees and we spend no more than 10 minutes per subject.

Dear Editor:

On behalf of the Board of Trustees of the New England Dance Theatre (NEDT), I would like to thank the numerous community businesses who supported our annual Nutcracker Sugar Plum Tea Parties last month. This all-weekend Tea Party event is an essential NEDT fundraiser that has evolved into a holiday must for young families and friends. This year, we had more than 750 people in attendance! Held at the New Canaan High School Cafeteria, the Sugar Plum Tea Parties transported its guests into a magical land that consumed the senses with bright floral backdrops, table decor worthy of a fairy tale fantasy, satin ribbon and tulle winding the buffet tables, puffs of cotton candy swirled in the air, and artsy crafts for any age. 

Before the arrival of our talented ballerinas and their impressive “behind-the-scenes” performances, the food and sweets took center stage!
