• St Patrick's Day Luck Of The Irish Zumba Class/Dance Party Planned

    The public is invited to join Megan Sajovic for a Luck of The Irish Zumba Fitness master class on Tuesday, March 17. The class — which Ms Sajovic promises will be a giant dance party — will begin at 6:45 pm in The Alexandria Room of Edmond Town Hall, 45 Main Street.

    Ms Sajovic is a licensed ZIN member. While the class is called a master class, Ms Sajovic says no experience is needed to participate. All levels and ages are welcome.

    “Grab your green and get on the dance floor,” said Ms Sajovic.

    Newtown Meals On Wheels (MOW) provides a hot, midday meal for shut-ins or people temporarily or permanently unable to get out, thanks to the many volunteer drivers. But due to retirement or other time conflicts for drivers, the organization is currently in great need of additional drivers, said driver coordinator Colleen Honan. Volunteers are assigned a route consisting of several meal recipients. Most drivers volunteer just once a month, one day of the week.

    Hang onto your picnic baskets. I think Yogi and friends are in town. Joe Paliotti spent about an hour watching this bear last week on Parmalee Hill Road, where his mother lives. His mom had crossed paths with the big guy — Joe, a hunter and outdoorsman estimates the bear was 350 to 400 pounds — when taking out the garbage after dark. Newtown Police investigated her call, but the bear was a no show by the time they arrived.
