Easter Weekend Who's ready to hunt for Easter eggs? Lots of hunts taking place in our area this weekend: West Windsor, Reading, Woodstock..so many eggs, so little time.
News You Can UseWeathersfield select board and town news: At the April 1 select board meeting, the board introduced the possibility of building solar arrays at three locations in town: the highway garage, the capped landfill and the town sand pit.

The board moved into discussion of how to fund the town’s fire services. The failed vote at town meeting to pay for a municipal fire department with a full-time fire chief has left the town with a July 1 decision on how to fund fire services. By unanimous vote the board authorized “$171,048 for support and operation of the fire services with an additional $17,000 to be added to the firefighting equipment reserve.”

Greetings from Little Cayman.

Little Cayman is one of three islands comprising the Cayman Islands (a British Overseas Territory in the Caribbean). It is located approximately 60 miles northeast of Grand Cayman and five miles west of Cayman Brac. Little Cayman is by far the least populous, with a permanent population of about 170-200 permanent residents. It is about 10 miles long with an average width of 1 mile with most of the island being undeveloped. Almost the entire island is at sea level. The highest elevation is about 40 feet. Little Cayman is known for its excellent scuba diving and birdwatching, unspoiled wildlife habitat and laid-back atmosphere. We’ve been here for a week of spectacular SCUBA diving. We’ve seen Hawksbills turtles, a rarely seen Loggerhead turtle, eagle rays, squid and lots of beautiful coral and sponges. It’s been sunny and in the 80s here and I’m not looking forward to returning to the cold and mud in Weathersfield.

News You Can Use The 8th Annual Weathersfield Town Challenge, a benefit for the Weathersfield Proctor Library, was held this past weekend. About 120 people attended (the most to attend the event so far) and almost $1500 was raised by the teams and through donations at the door.

The event MC was Ginger Wimberg, who also crafted most of the trivia questions. Ten teams competed and the three final teams were: The School Board (Sean Whalen, Susan Hingdinger, Kristen Bruso), The Library (Rika Henderson, Glenna Coleman, Rick Bates, Barbara Putnam), and The Select Board (Kelly Murphy, Dan Boyer, Dave Fuller). Congratulations go out to the winning team, the Weathersfield School Board.
