The town of Suffield will celebrate its 350th Anniversary on Monday, October 12, 2020, and people have lots of ideas for making it an amazing anniversary year! The challenge is that at this point they are ideas, and not actual plans.

The timing of the event did seem odd, but it makes sense when the whole story is told. On May 30, a few weeks ago, First Selectman Melissa Mack cut a ribbon strung across one aisle of the big array of solar cells erected in Kevin Sullivan’s back field on North Street in late 2016.

Memorial Day Observed

The threatened rain postponed itself and the temperature was comfortably cool, so conditions during Suffield’s Memorial Day observance on May 28 were fine for the customary short parade up Mountain Road and traditional ceremony on Veteran’s Park.
