  • The 25th Annual Hospice Breakfast

    To the Editor:

    June 11, 2014 was an extremely proud day for Newtown in that we held our 25th Annual  Summer Breakfast at the Waterview on behalf of the Newtown Chapter of Regional Hospice and Home Care.

    We are proud of so many of our achievements over the years, including having a strong support base of attendees, raffle prize donors, volunteers, publicity by The Bee, and The Waterview with its beautiful setting, and the staff of the Waterview who donated their time to serve all of us.

    The New York Times’ Sunday Book Review by Dawn Drazl this past weekend calls Poor Man’s Feast: A Love Story of Comfort, Desire, and the Art of Simple Cooking “one of the finest food memoirs of recent years.” If that’s not enough to send you scurrying to get a copy of the book, maybe knowing that it is penned by Newtown author and award-winning blogger Elissa Altman will do the trick. Elissa’s been crisscrossing the country promoting her new book this spring.
