Easton NewsBits From Town Hall
- The numbers for Covid have ticked up some so Easton is at a rate of 9.5 per 100,000 for the weeks ending Nov. 13. This does not mean any changes, but it is a reminder that the pandemic isn’t over yet.
- There will be a public forum on Nov. 23 at 7:30 p.m. at Samuel Staples Elementary School, to discuss public act 21-29 and affordable housing in town. State Senator Tony Hwang, State Rep. Anne Hughes and P&Z Chair Ray Martin will speak. This is informational only and will be recorded. The town is required to produce a plan by June 30, 2022. In formulating that plan there will be multiple opportunities for public input. The public forum is to provide information from local legislators on the act itself.
- The Senior Center has been working overtime to collect and deliver food to neighbors in need.
- The Easton Garden Club Annual Wreath & Poinsettia Sale is well underway. In addition to accepting printed order forms, the club is using its website to accept orders by credit card or PayPal through its online store at www.eastongardenclubofct.org/wreath-and-poinsettia-sale. Deadline for placing orders is Monday, Nov. 22. Each year the club hosts this fundraiser to fund activities that benefit the Easton community. Soon they will be decorating the town with wreaths, holiday greenery, and hand delivering gifts of poinsettias to our seniors in need for the holidays. Alison Witherbee, municipal agent for the aged and the Easton Senior Center provided the club with this important list.
- There are a number of openings on boards and commissions. This town runs on the work of those who volunteer their services. Everyone is encouraged to consider taking a role in helping the town.
