    The officers and members of Sandy Hook Volunteer Fire & Rescue Co. would like to thank our family, friends, fellow firefighters, residents of Newtown and out-of-town guests for helping to make our 28th annual LobsterFest on Friday and Saturday, June 5-6, a success. We served over 2,000 lobsters and 660 pounds of steak last weekend, along with hundreds of burger and hot dog dinners.

  • The Top of the Mountain

    It looks like the Newtown Reads selection at C.H. Booth Library is a popular pick. Residents had snatched up all of the free copies of The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society by late last week. Not to worry. Our librarians were on top of it, and additional copies were ordered and ready for readers by midweek. Newtown Reads is a program encouraging all residents to read the same book, at the same time, by July 1.

  • With A Flourish Of Bibs And Butter, LobsterFest Returns To Sandy Hook

    The 27th Annual Sandy Hook LobsterFest, a fundraiser hosted by Sandy Hook Volunteer Fire & Rescue Co., was held Friday and Saturday, June 6-7, at the fire company’s main station on Riverside Road.

    Members of the company, its ladies auxiliary, Junior Corps, and family members and friends all volunteered throughout the two-day event to help serve steak and lobster dinners (or surf and turf for those who went for that option), sides and drinks to ticket-holders. A raw bar and desserts were also available.
