Dear Editor,

On Thursday September 1st the 6th Annual Community Addiction Awareness Vigil will be held (rain or shine) in the pop-up park at the corner of Elm St and South Ave.  The event begins with live music at 6:30 PM followed by 3 speakers who will share their experience, strength and hope. 

This is an occasion for the community to come together, allowing others in recovery as well as their family members and friends to listen and support people struggling to overcome addiction and attain the benefits of sobriety. The event is a way for our town to demonstrate an open and compassionate mindset, facilitating an ability to match available resources with people in need. 

Having attended the Vigil myself multiple times, this is a powerful celebration of a working solution to addiction.  Sadly not all sufferers find this solution in time to save their lives. The Vigil will also celebrate and memorialize the lives cut way too short.  What family hasn’t been in some way affected by addiction?  I invite and encourage attendance.  The Vigil is truly a heartwarming and eye opening experience.

Kudos to everyone who helped make the final concert of New Canaan Chamber Music’s 2021-2022 season a great success last week. Our audience of nearly 250 enthusiasts of all ages was enthralled by breathtaking performances of Bach, Grieg, Ravel, Chopin, and Bartok. The weather was perfect and the idyllic setting on the Waveny Park lawn was framed by a beautiful sunset.

There is a guy from history who would be pretty proud of what is happening at Weed and Elm street now. His name was William Cobbett. He had a bright idea on how to get some local dogs to stop chasing his rabbits.

Who Knew? New Canaan on Ice

‘Who Knew?’ is sponsored by Walter Stewart’s Market. Is it too hot for opinions this week? Because I have one.  Everyone can openly adopt precisely one form of snobbery. You can be a wine aficionado, an ardent collector of vinyl, or an art-house cinephile, but combine all three into one personality, and you’d best tread lightly.

Editor,

The following is the statement I read at the Special Meeting of the Historical Review Committee this past Thursday, July 14. The Committee met to review the written objection to demolition of 8 Husted Lane here in New Canaan. There are more questions regarding process and requirements than those that I address here, but it’s a start.
