Screen shot 2014-04-23 at 10.08.12 AMWith all the chaos that surrounded Peck Place School this year, Parents and administrators had to find inventive ways to make everything work as seamlessly as possible to minimize disruption to the students’ lives.
One annual event that everyone looks forward to is the 5k Road Race, but since the school was out of bounds, organizers had to find an alternative location to make it happen this year.
Jamie Beaudette went before the Board of Selectmen and asked the Park & Rec Commission if the school could use the High Plains Community Center as a starting point and use the certified Chilly Chili Run route for their fundraiser. It was approved without any problems and so, here is the information you need to take part in this great fundraising event.

Stevie Cifarelli caught 4 fish on opening day.

Stevie Cifarelli caught 4 fish on opening day.

The state DEEP began stocking many ponds and waterways across CT with trout in early February.

Fishermen of all ages and genders couldn’t wait until the fishing season officially opened on Saturday, April 19 and flocked to their favorite fishing holes, poles in hand and bait at the ready.

Some, like Stevie Cifarelli were lucky and quickly caught their quota. Others stood by all day long without ever getting a bite.

Fishing is one activity where patience is extremely necessary, and catch and release is the fish’s favorite method of this sport.
