    Twenty Newtown teenagers and five chaperones traveled to Loveland, Colo., the final week of July, repairing homes damaged during flooding there last fall.

  • Ben’s Lighthouse Taking Teens To Colorado To Repair Flood Damage

    The second annual “Helping Is Healing” disaster relief mission trip is on its way to Fort Collins, Colo., next week to help families recover from the horrendous flooding that destroyed homes, neighborhoods, and communities last fall.

    In a trip that is fully funded by Ben’s Lighthouse, 20 Newtown teen volunteers will spend the week framing, installing drywall, rebuilding decks, clearing debris, landscaping, and whatever else is needed to help some families whose homes were ravaged by the floods.

  • Hundreds Find ‘Safe Harbor’ At Second Annual Lighthouse Festival

    From tiny little cork boats, shown here, to a 20-foot interactive lighthouse, the Second Annual Lighthouse Festival at Trinity Church had a few dozen offerings to satisfy the event’s theme of “Safe Harbors.” 

  • Lighthouse And Labyrinth Dedicated

    Please note, the song that was sung at the end of the lighthouse dedication on June 14 was called “We Choose Love.” It was written by Darryl Gregory and his students, as a gift to Newtown from Schaghticoke Middle School in New Milford. The caption that accompanies the photo to the right has been updated to reflect that information.
