Local Staff Member Now New Librarian

It is no surprise to anyone in Suffield to read that our library has suffered extraordinary tumult in the last few years, with much repair work and many code requirements needing to be met and less than stellar temporary accommodations during the interim. We all rejoiced when it reopened last summer, its beautiful new Mary Anne Zak entrance offering much-needed handicapped access.

Music is a Unifying Element

Rituals at holiday times enrich all our lives, and Suffield has lots of them. None are more joyful than the Christmas Concert at the Second Baptist Church, which is scheduled for Saturday, December 14, at 3:00 p.m. (snow date December 15).

KML Donors Reception

On Sunday, September 22, the Kent Memorial Library Foundation honored those who have made the new addition possible – not just those who have given money, but also those who have given generously of their time and energy.

NFL Drafts Suffield Academy Grad

There has been a great deal of interest in recent weeks about the NFL draft and the choice by the Miami Dolphins of Christian Wilkins, a 23-year-old Suffield Academy alumnus (class of ’15); his athletic gifts are well known and appreciated by many.

A Class Act!

When I hear the term “a life well lived,” I often wonder what the speaker means by those words. When I think of Mary Anne Zak, who turned 90 a few days ago, I don’t have to wonder; all who know her can attest to her life, well lived—and it’s not over yet!

As Schools Match Wits

We have television personalities in our midst! Both Suffield High School and Suffield Academy participate in multiple “quiz bowls” every year, but only one of them – “As Schools Match Wits” – is televised; it can be viewed on WGBY most Saturdays at 7 p.m.
