If it’s Thanksgiving, it must be time for the Westport Police Department’s annual Toy Ddrive.
Local union 2080 and the Westport Police Benevolent Association are sponsoring the event. Each year, thousands of toys are distributed to underprivileged children throughout Fairfield County, and at Bridgeport and St. Vincent’s Hospitals.
Westport police officers will accept new, unopened and unwrapped toys at the ASF parking lot (1560 Post Road East) on the first 2 Saturdays and Sundays in December (5, 6, 12 and 13), from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.
In addition, collection boxes will be set up now through December 14 at:
- Age of Reason, 9 Post Road West
- ASF Sports & Outdoors ,1560 Post Road East
- Awesome Toys and Gifts, 429 Post Road East
- The Toy Post, 180 Post Road East

Swimming at the Y has been my COVID happy place. Nothing like a pool-ful of chlorine to keep the coronavirus at bay.
No longer. The Westport Weston Family Y announced yesterday that effective immediately, both the lap and warm pools will be shut down indefinitely.
The decision was based on updated guidelines from the governor’s office. Under those rules, only 4 swimmers could be allowed at any time.
The wellness center, gymnastics center, group fitness classes and school-age childcare programs remain open.
And finally … c’mon! You didn’t really expect anything different today, did you?
