For years, people have asked WestportMoms to sponsor an Easter Egg Hunt.
Get those baskets ready!
The social media wizards have hopped to it (ho ho). The event is set for this Saturday (April 2, 11 a.m. to 1 p.m.), on the big lawn in front of Saugatuck Congregational Church.
It includes make-your-own bags for egg collecting, courtesy of One River Art School; music by DJ Marcello; sports and games with Sara Holland; face painting; food trucks, pictures with the Easter Bunny — and of course, a hunt for 3,000 eggs.
The cost is $20 per family. A portion of the proceeds will be donated to Save the Children Ukraine.
Jersey Mike’s’ Westport location may — or may not — be closed.
But the Norwalk store joins more than 2,000 others on Wednesday (March 30), in donating 100% of its sales to Special Olympics.
You read that right: Not 100% of profits. 100% of sales.
Making the offer even tastier, Westporters Rick Levin, Bob Levy and Sunny Sherman are buying a few hundred sandwiches. They’ll be donated to STAR of Norwalk, and Bridgeport’s Alpha Community Center and Cardinal Shehan Center.
The Jersey Mike’s at 360 Connecticut Avenue in Norwalk has been excited to work with Rick, Bob and Sunny on their idea. They’re ready to make those sandwiches — and all others that area residents order, on that special day.
Many Westporters have expressed concern about the massive logs stored on the Post Road property near Roseville Road.
That’s not the only potential danger. Drivers heading south on Roseville have a tough enough time seeing westbound traffic, thanks to the blind curve.
Often now though, a logging truck parked on the lot makes it even harder.
There’s no “No Right Turn on Red” sign at that traffic light, for Roseville traffic. There should be.
Savvy motorists — at least, those turning right — cut through the McDonald’s parking lot.
Everyone else should just wait for the green.
It’s the time of year for swans and their eggs. The annual ritual is today’s “Westport … Naturally” feature. This photo is from Riverside Avenue, near the boardwalk by the medical offices.
