Children Are At The Core Of Newly Opened Dental Practice

 Around Town, Home, Latest News  Comments Off on Children Are At The Core Of Newly Opened Dental Practice
Dec 082018
 

A newly opened dental practice will help children brighten their smiles just in time for the holidays. Orange Children’s Dentistry, 518 Boston Post Road, Suite 4-5, will host a ribbon cutting ceremony on Tuesday, Dec. 11, at 5:00 p.m. to celebrate the dental practice’s grand opening. The practice is geared toward children and will serve a hub for all children dentistry needs.

“Children experience dental visits differently than adults do, and certain parts of their care will stay planted in their memories forever,” said Dr. Paula C. Cerqueira, a pediatric dentist and founder of Orange Children’s Dentistry. “Whether your child has preventative, restorative, or special dentistry needs, we make sure that they are treated like a family member and that they understand they are in a safe environment.”

When Dr. C. decided to open her own dental practice, she set out to ensure that children would receive better care than she received when she was a child. She is confident the environment she has helped create will be welcoming and inviting to children and should reinforce the idea that the practice was “built from the ground up with children in mind.”

A tour of the practice will follow the ribbon-cutting ceremony. Refreshments will be available.

Meet Your 2018-19 Spartans Ice Hockey Team

 Amity High School, Around Town, Home, Latest News, School News, Sports, Today's Events  Comments Off on Meet Your 2018-19 Spartans Ice Hockey Team
Dec 072018
 

The 2018-19 Amity Spartans Boys Ice Hockey Team is already showing a lot of promise. On Wednesday evening the boys declawed the Masuk Panthers 11-1 in a scrimmage game in West Haven.

Tonight’s event will be much more telling, as the Spartans go up against three powerhouse teams in the Jackie Coyle Jamboree at Edward L. Bennett Rink at 6 p.m. West Haven, Notre Dame-West Haven, and NFI will give us an opportunity to see our boys in the most challenging experience on the ice so far.

On Wednesday, we saw how skilled our goalies were and the exceptional teamwork of our Spartans. The 2018-19 team is not afraid to shoot, grab the puck from their opponents, and put themselves out there. If we see that same spirit tonight, going up against some of the toughest teams in the area. I believe in the Spartans, and even though the Jamboree only gives you a taste of things to come, I think you will see some impressive action out on the ice tonight.

This season’s Amity Spartans includes some familiar names and a few new ones. Here is the 2018-19 Roster.

The three Senior Captains are Colin Hughes (8), Jason Csejka (18), and Kenneth Page (20).

The team includes two other seniors, Ryan Miller (7), and Nelson Bordeleau (10),

There are seven juniors this season, Cody White (13), Connor Bath (14), Ed Martino (17), Michael Lebreck (19), Nick Kiwanis (22), Sai Neelam (29), and Malachi Zurolo (31).

The sophomore players are: Dylan Raver (2), Justin Miller (4), Caleb Marcin (6), Tommy Schittina (11), Dylan Gherlone (15), Zack Cable (16), Jason Dittman (21), Ty Demaio (23), and Ty Cable (28)

There are two freshmen on the team this year: Ethan Moffett (9), and Michael Andreesen (30)

Head Coach is Mike Richetelli, who brought the 2014 Spartans to the state championship game. He’s assisted by Todd Dandelske, Jeff Buchter, and newcomer Jim Sokolske.

I am so happy to announce that the male dog that was found on Opekun Road has been reunited with his family.

Luckily “Aspen” had a microchip and the family thought to bring him to the vet to be scanned and the vet contacted the owner.

A big thank you to the family that was kind enough to bring him in from the cold and give him the love he needed until his family was found.

This is the best news we’ve had so far this week.

Help Reunite This Boy With His Family

Are you missing your dog? A family on Opekun Road in Orange found this older, gentle male dog on their porch around 2 a.m. this morning.

They say he is definitely a family dog that listens well.

They said, “We took him in our home and we have a cat, dog, baby, and a kindergartener so we know he’s a good family dog.”

They’d like to reunite this guy with his family — wouldn’t that be a wonderful Christmas present?

If he belongs to you, or you know who his family is, please e-mail curcurup@hotmail.com. And, of course let Orange Live know, too, so we can tell our readers that he’s been identified.

Orange Resident Presents Frightmare Before Christmas This Month

 Home, Latest News  Comments Off on Orange Resident Presents Frightmare Before Christmas This Month
Dec 062018
 

This holiday season, visit Fright Haven in Stratford for a haunted house event like no other: “FRIGHTMARE BEFORE CHRISTMAS.”

For three nights only this month Saturday, December 15, Friday, December 21 and Saturday, December 22, visitors to CT’s largest and greatest indoor Halloween Haunted House will experience brand new holiday attractions, all decked out for the holidays and ready to make guests scream ’til the New Year.

The start of the scares begins with “Dead End Doctors Office: No Home for the Holidays,” a horrific look into one not-so picture perfect pre-Christmas doctors office visit. Ornaments are smashed, stockings are torn…and is that blood on the dentist’s chair? Who…or what…could have done this? When did the “sleigh ride” turn into a medical “slay-ride?!”

Next, take a tour of Santa’s infamous toy workshop in “The Forest Factory.” Don’t expect to find any happy elves, however — they’ve been overworked this season, and Santa’s demanding schedule has caused them all to lose their minds and lose their way to the North Pole.  Will guests survive this terrifying tour and escape the angry elves and rejected toys that have seemingly come to life? Or will visitors become just another piece on the assembly line?

Guests will marvel at the vintage Christmas sets, decor, props and figurines which are used for the production. Combine the visuals with special effects, animatronics and live actors, and you have some clue as to what to expect at   “FRIGHTMARE BEFORE CHRISTMAS.” But it’s hard to expect the unexpected, and there are scares around every corner at this haunted holiday show.

The limited-run of 3 weekend nights this month is expected to draw an equal number of return visitors who experienced Fright Haven during the Halloween season, and those who didn’t yet get a chance to enjoy the fun and fear of the 20,000 square foot indoor attraction.

Fright Haven’s “FRIGHTMARE BEFORE CHRISTMAS” received rave reviews in the past, and producers have promised to amp up the ho-ho-horrors. Chestnuts may not be the only thing roasting on an open fire! Chestnuts may not be the only thing roasting on an open fire.

Fright Haven is located in the Stratford Square/Marshall’s Shopping Plaza, 411 Barnum Avenue Cutoff, next to L.A. Fitness and Ninety Nine Restaurant (across from Home Depot). Parking is free, and all events are indoors. Hours are 7pm-10pm. The event is open to all ages but recommended for 12 and over unless accompanied by an adult.

Advance tickets are $20 each ($ 25 door or $20 at door with non-perishable food donation) and now on sale from https://frighthaven.ticketleap.com/frightmare2018/.  Using the code word “CLAWS” (as in Santa ‘Claws’) at check-out will enable visitors to save $5 off each ticket purchased in advance.

Fright Haven is working with Stratford’s Volunteer EMS to raise funds, collect food items and raise awareness for Sterling House. Visitors to the holiday Haunted Attraction may take $5 off on-site admission or $5 off merch by bringing a non-perishable food donation. Stratford volunteer EMS Association will be on location collecting donations on behalf of Sterling House. All donations impact the local community.
