After three back-to-back winter storms last week, it feels as if winter has released its grip on us, at last. I think I even saw some grassy areas peeking through, after the sunny days midweek. This hint of spring probably has gardeners itching to get their hands back into the soil — or at least get the garden prepped for planting. The Governor’s Horse Guard is ready to help.

Little Genesis Fuentes may be on her way home to Belize by the end of next week, I’m told by Rotary Club member Pat Caruso. Genesis, a 3-year-old in need of heart surgery, came to the United States in early January, through the efforts of the Newtown Rotary Club and the Rotary Club International Gift of Life program.

Here’s one good thing about the Arctic temperatures we’ve been enduring. The temporary ice skating rink at Fairfield Hills has been set up for the season, and I have noticed people are taking time to visit it again. The rink will have a formal event next weekend, when Newtown Parks & Recreation hosts a family ice skating party on Friday, February 7. DJ Kevin Koschel will provide music for the event, which will run from 6:30 until 9:30 pm. Hot chocolate and hot coffee will be served, and a small bonfire will help keep some guests warm.
