After being closed for the summer months for “revamping, reorganizing, and cleaning,” said VNA member Joan Reynolds, the VNA Thrift Shop will reopen for a new season on Saturday, September 12.
“We have been cleaning everything up, as well as bringing in new merchandise,” Mrs Reynolds said September 4. She and fellow VNA members Mae Schmidle and Anna Wiedemann were at the shop, located on the lower level of Edmond Town Hall, but with its own entrance, to see what needed to be done in the week before the shop would reopen.

Please join us in the community tag/vendor sale to benefit the Ayles family, on Saturday, October 11, from 10 am-2 pm, at 31 Pecks Lane, Newtown.
Kenny Ayles was a big part of our community. He volunteered his time and did so much for our town. Kenny passed away on August 21st, fighting a valiant fight for 6 years with brain cancer. Now we’d like our community to rally round the Ayleses and join us in this event to help them.

“The heart of a volunteer is not measured in the size, but by the depth of the commitment to make a difference in the lives of others.” —DeAnn Hollis
Surely, Anna Wiedemann embodies that definition. Anna is to be the recipient of the Jefferson-Jackson-Bailey Award on May 15. I am unable to attend so I would like to offer my congratulations and say a bit about the Anna I know.

Longtime Newtown resident Anna Wiedemann believes the measure of a person cannot be defined by their political persuasion. So it is fitting that the Democratic Town Committee’s Jefferson-Jackson-Bailey Dinner honoring her for service to the community and its citizens will be open to everyone — regardless of party affiliation.
Case in point: Republican First Selectman Pat Llodra said she is eager to attend; she sent in her reservation the minute she heard about the event.

Anna Wiedemann has been selected by the Democratic Town Committee as the honoree for their 2014 Jefferson-Jackson-Bailey Dinner. Ms Wiedemann was chosen because of her extensive contributions to Newtown.
A resident of Sandy Hook, Ms Wiedemann has contributed her time and talents to numerous groups in Newtown for more than a quarter century.
This is a bipartisan event; all are welcome.
