On Sunday evening, January 31, there were a half-dozen skaters out, all of them practicing hockey. The rink, prepared on the two basketball courts of Suffield’s Family Recreation Complex, had opened that day and immediately became a popular spot. A Town announcement explained that there should be no concern about damage to the courts, as repairs had been planned anyway.

Everlasting Wreath Workshops were a hit for Valentine’s and Galantine’s Day!

Just in time for the Valentine’s and Galantine’s Day holidays, the Parks and Recreation Department offered two more new wreath decorating workshops with Suffield’s own Julie Harrison (Julie the Garden Fairy). After the popularity of the Holiday Wreath decorating workshops in December, the new Everlasting Wreath workshops held on February 4 and 11 on Zoom were a hit. Julie prepared all of the supplies for the class from her own farm right here in Suffield. Many thanks also to her helper Elle Harrison. The quality handmade wreaths were beautiful and they made a perfect and meaningful gift for Valentine’s and Galantine’s Day! We will be offering more workshops with Julie this spring.
