TRY IT NO THANKS

Memorial Day in Salisbury, CT

Are you looking forward to summer? Picnics at the lake, walking the Appalachian Trail, picking up fresh produce at a farmer’s market, enjoying backyard barbecues, riding bikes around Twin Lakes or on the Rail Trail, or maybe putting in the canoe on Lakeville Lake?   

Traditionally, Memorial Day is the kick-off of the summer season. In Salisbury, we have a wonderful parade that honors the men and women who have served our country, followed by an ice cream social on the lawn of the White Hart Inn, hosted by the Salisbury Visiting Nurse Association. 

Many towns in our region have similar celebrations on Memorial Day – traditions that help make our part of the world so special. Check out the listings in your local paper to find out how your community honors all those who have served and continue to serve our country.

    March 16-18, 2017: The Drowsy Chaperone at Housatonic Valley Regional High School

    Lori Belter

    The Housatonic Musical Theatre Society at Housatonic Valley Regional High School is proud to present its 14th annual musical, The Drowsy Chaperone. With 90% of the funding for the musical provided through ticket sales, sponsorships, and fundraising events, this year’s show features 30 students onstage, three in the orchestra, and six working backstage, all helping to bring The Drowsy Chaperone to life for four performances, March 16-18, 2017, accompanied by a live, 11-piece orchestra.

    Winner of five Tony Awards, The Drowsy Chaperone is a loving send-up of the Jazz Age musical. When a diehard theatre fan plays his favorite cast album, the characters come to life in his living room in this hilarious musical farce, featuring one show-stopping song and dance number after another.

    Tickets ($15 for adults, $10 for seniors/students/children) may be purchased online at HMTS.org or at the Salisbury, Sharon, and Kent pharmacies.

          Spring Has Sprung!

          Can it be true? Spring is really here? If you are like me, I am so happy to see the crocus and snow drops this year!

          There are few rites of spring that satisfy more than the annual clean. It is a tradition that allows us to freshen up and get a head start on the hectic seasons of spring and summer.


          Whether you decide to clean top to bottom or inside to out, please remember to ensure fire safety by:

          • Changing the batteries in your smoke detectors (this should be done twice a year) and make sure the units are free of dust.
          • Teach everyone in your household how to use a fire extinguisher.

          • Set and review escape plans. There should be two ways out from each room. Crawl to avoid toxic smoke. Once you are out, stay out. Establish a meeting place in front of the house to let fire fighters know you are out.

          • Practice the plan!

          As a community service, I would encourage everyone take a look around your neighborhood. Now is a great time to remove garbage from our beautiful roads before the weeds and poison ivy hide it again.
