March Commission Meetings

Please check the Town of Suffield website for actual time and location (virtual, Zoom, etc.) of the following commission and committee meetings:

Safely Get AARP Tax Assistance

Volunteer AARP IRS-certified tax counselors will be available at the Senior Center during the tax season to provide free basic tax assistance and electronic tax preparation services. Changes to the procedures have been made to make this a safe and rewarding experience for all.

Town Hall Almost Ready

There were a few things yet to do, but they weren’t expected to interfere with Town departments moving back into the renovated Town Hall after the furniture is delivered. At the January 21 Permanent Building Commission (PBC) meeting, there was a general feeling of satisfaction, and the Certificate of Acceptance by the Building Inspector was expected soon after.

Friends of Suffield Valentine Party

On February 13, the Friends of Suffield assembled at Highland Park Market parking lot. They purchased meals and cookies and assembled bags to be delivered to Suffield seniors who had registered in advance for a free meal delivery.

Animal Control Officer Honored

Animal Control Officer (ACO) Paul Selig was presented with the 2020 Paul A. Deneault/Theresa Foss Memorial Animal Control Officer of the Year Award on February 4 at the Suffield Police Station. The award is usually presented at the annual conference in September, but due to COVID-19 restrictions, it was cancelled.

Seniors Beware

I have received four calls regarding this scam, two in the middle of the night. They said I had won a sweepstakes and I should give them the routing number of my bank account so they could deposit the money.

Town Braves Difficult Conversations

The Town of Suffield tackles the topics of anti-racism, gender equality, access and ability, and religious and cultural expression in a speaker series, which kicked off on February 6. The virtual format features both scholars and authors presenting via talks, panels and discussions.

Famous Visitor Disappointed

A notable politician visited Suffield the other day to view our 350th drive-by parade. Unfortunately, while he had the right spot for a good view, he had been told the wrong date.
