Samuel S. Fuller (1923-2016)

We at The Suffield Observer have been privileged to work with and under the guidance of our beloved founder, Sam Fuller. Sam put his heart and soul into the production of this paper. He started the Observer as a way for the Town to improve communication with its citizens.

As viewed from Ffyler Place, Suffield’s derelict old highway garage is one of three buildings that have been reported to be a discouraging feature for potential developers of the empty space farther down the road. First Selectman Melissa Mack reported in the November 2 Selectmen’s meeting that plans were under way for the removal and hazmat remediation of this property. Some clean-up work has already begun.

Old Highway Garage Removal Planned

Who among us doesn’t appreciate the beautiful new CVS on Mountain Road? What a fine job the company did, tailoring the new building to fit so beautifully into our town!

We are pleased to announce that since that launch more than 3,400 users have visited our website.
