The start of school may look unfamiliar — including the calendar.
But when you look at the Westport School Student Art calendar, you’ll realize that some things never change. Fortunately.
Despite disruption, the Westport Public Art Collections has produced its 2020-21 calendar. As always, it features great K-12 student art
Calendars can be purchased online (click here) and at ASF Sports & Outdoors (1560 Post Road East).
As always, proceeds support the care and maintenance of the fabulous Westport Public Art Collections. Works hang in all public buildings and are placed in outdoor parks. The most recent addition: the “Rock, Paper, Scissors” sculpture donated by Staples graduates Ann Sheffer and Bill Scheffler, to be installed soon near the Westport Library.
Speaker of back-to-school: Staples High School teachers Deirdre Flores and Sarah Stanley spotted this sign on Pumpkin Hill Road.
As they stopped to take a picture, the homeowner cheered them — and thanked them from her porch. It made their day — and made them proud of what they do, and where they do it.
Missing your fitness? Wondering how you’ll survive whatever’s ahead when the weather turns cooler? Thought about taking a fitness class, but uncertain about how they work?
Head downtown on Saturday, September 12.
The Westport Downtown Merchants Association sponsors its first Health and Fitness Expo. JoyRide, RowHouse, Pure Barre and Athleta will all stage live classes outdoors, on Main Street. All will include levels of fitness and ability. All will of course follow COVID-19 requirements.
Vendors will also present health and fitness concepts. Church Lane merchants may join in too.

As summer ends, a shout-out to Alec Udell. Son of Staples grad Jeff Udell, he was visiting his grandmother Judy and went fishing at Compo, on the jetty by the cannons.
Using very light tackle, he caught this 30-inch striped bass. After a photo op, Alec released it safely back into the water.
And finally … today in 1888, George Eastman patented the first roll-film camera, and registered the name “Kodak.”
