• Annual Spring Egg Hunt Becomes Snowy Scramble

    A happy Easter Bunny led a group of about 200 parents and children across a snowy field at Dickinson Park on Saturday, March 28, to the new playground, known as FunSpace II, where about 4,000 Easter eggs were scattered on the ground at the town’s annual Spring Egg Hunt.

    If the wedding dress that Fiona (Emma Stierle) wore in the Newtown Middle School production of Shrek The Musical Jr, staged Friday, March 27, through Sunday, March 29, looked familiar, that’s because it formerly appeared on a window mannequin at Julie Allen Bridals. The bridal shop donated the dress for future productions at the school after learning a wedding dress was needed for a scene in that production.

  • Follow The Example Of Christ

    To the Editor:

    A person who commits suicide deprives himself of the ability to follow the example of Christ by uniting his sufferings to Christ’s. The people around the person are also deprived of the chance to follow Christ by caring for this person.

    May we all work to promote life and hope in this Easter season and always.
