Sandy Hook

  • On Our Cover

    It is our tradition for our Christmas week edition to publish a seasonal illustration on our cover. This year’s illustration is once again by local artist Kim Proctor.

    It depicts an old lamplighter plying his trade in the new streetscape of Sandy Hook Center, which in this rendering includes the new village Christmas tree at the corner of Washington Avenue and Riverside Road.


    Ms Proctor explained that this year’s illustration is “dedicated with great admiration to Pat Llodra for her compassionate leadership.”

  • Sandy Hook Tree Lighting Was A Double Success!

    To the Editor:

    On behalf of The Sandy Hook Organization for Prosperity (SHOP), I would like to thank all who attended our 12th Annual Christmas Tree Lighting.  This year, the Sandy Hook community gathered to light our traditional tree, and then joined together in lighting Sandy Hook’s new tree just across the street!  From the snow flurries outside Sandy Hook Hair Co. to 3D glasses, from Santa’s visit to face painting, it was a festive night in Sandy Hook with our biggest crowd ever!
