Congratulations — we have a winner!
An “06880” reader bid $1,500. She’ll receive an oil painting, painted by an artist in Marigny, Westport’s sister city in France.
Our friends overseas donated it, as part of our fundraiser for our other sister city: Lyman, Ukraine. Together, Westport and Marigny are helping the besieged city recover from Russian occupation.
The need is great, for building supplies, generators and a water filtration system. We set a goal of $250,000. So far we’ve raised over $186,000. Please help us hit that mark!

Today’s “Westport … Naturally” image takes us behind Jr’s Deli & Grille, on the Saugatuck River.
Sure, it’s frigid.
Unless you’re a duck.
And finally … Happy Boxing Day!
