A Gift from the Creator

Festival Comment

On a warm Saturday afternoon, the Suffield Arts Festival was held July 14th at Bruce Park. My family and I had the opportunity to see Suffield Youth Theater’s talented members in action along with guest acts perform.

It’s more than a little frustrating for supporters of a community center to see both the Town’s proposal for a new Town Hall, whose cost will most likely be well over the approved bond amount from the 2015 bonding vote, as well as a seemingly fast-track proposal to move the highway garage to a location on East Street where we would be leasing, not owning, the property, ignoring, again, the vote in 2015 approving the bonding for the renovation of Bridge Street School (BSS) as a community center.

Aces High Owns the Sky

The Suffield-Windsor Locks joint robotics team, known as Aces High or Team 176, had one of their best seasons this past school year. This year’s robotics competition revolved around placing cubes (sometimes 7 feet high) on a scale type contraption.

At The International Geography Bee
