For decades, worshipers have admired the stained glass windows in the sanctuary.

But — as shown above — they’ve been removed for restoration.

Until they’re back in place this fall, beautiful art has been replace by equally gorgeous, ever-changing natural scenery.

If you miss the stained glass (or never saw it): Here’s a photo.

Cedar Point Yacht Club’s OneDesign Regattas have gotten so big, there are now 2 of them.

The first of Westport’s big summer sailboat races was held this past weekend. The second event — for smaller boats — is set for late September.

CPYC hosted 450 sailors. They were supported by 100 volunteers.

Cedar Point Yacht Club was organized 132 years ago, in 1887. In 2019, it’s still going strong. It was just named US Sailing’s OneDesign Club of the Year.

Here’s some of this past weekend’s action.

There’s plenty of life in Willowbrook Cemetery. Officials there proudly announce 2 new additions.

Born Wednesday in Section 11,  the twins and their mother are healthy and roaming the grounds.

But it wasn’t easy. Cemetery manager Danny Amoruccio reports that as workers dug a grave for the burial, the mother walked over — and gave birth right there to 2 fawns.

But she got scared and fled — leaving one behind. After nearly falling into the grave, it became attached to Danny. It followed him everywhere.

Willowbrook officials called Animal Control. They quickly came, wrapped the newborn deer up, and walked it to the woods. The mother appeared immediately, and hustled it away.

The family has grown to 16. They now reside — happily and together — in undeveloped sections of the cemetery.
