Roundup: Turkey, Wind, More

Thanksgiving is already in our rear-view mirror. But this story from last week will keep you smiling through Christmas.

From noon through 8:30 p.m. Wednesday, the Westport Housing Authority delivered 376 holiday meals to residents at 4 sites: Canal Street, Hidden Brook, Sasco Creek and Hales Court.

Boston Market on Black Rock Turnpike supplied the turkeys, hams, mashed potatoes, stuffing, gravy, mac and cheese, salads, cornbread, and apple and pumpkin pies.

Housing Authority officials Amanda Sayegh and Andrea Santamaria organized it all, and distributed the meals with the help of interns.

“Our residents are fabulous,” says WHA executive director Carol Martin. “This made them so happy. A little bit of safe, social contact — and a Thanksgiving meal — goes a long way.” (Hat tip: Jim Ezzes)


How windy was it yesterday?

Westport had nearly 750 power outages at 2 p.m. By 4:45, that number was below 5.

At the storm’s height, even heavy sandbags could not keep Finalmente’s outdoor dining tent down.

That’s not what any restaurant needs now, for sure. But then again, what do you expect from 2020?

And finally … December 1 is World AIDS Day. This song is dedicated all the men, women and children, taken far too young by this dreadful disease.
