Scores of Westporters turned out yesterday to honor a wonderful Westporter.
And they did it in a very fitting Westport way.
Angela Trucks — who died last month at 69 — was co-chair of the town’s Beautification Committee. She dedicated her local life to making Westport look good. She was particularly involved in the Re-Greening of the Post Road.
So what better place to light a fir tree — symbolizing beauty, warmth and freshness — than on the Post Road?
The tree sits in front of Jesup Hall — Westport’s original Town Hall. It was donated and decorated by Terrain.
The patio was filled with people of all ages. There was music, mulled wine from Rothbard’s, and s’mores courtesy of Amis.
The Westport Downtown Merchants Association contributed ornaments and tags. People wrote loving thoughts of Angela, or other loved ones.
Thanks to all, for this special way to honor Angela’s Re-Greening of the Post Road.
