Good Afternoon,

On Tuesday June 14th, we celebrated the many years of service by Anne Fiyalka to the Easton Senior Center. Congratulations Anne, we appreciate your years of service!

Joel Barlow’s Annual Commencement Ceremony is Monday, June 20th at 5:00pm. Students arrive at 4:00pm to start to line up and doors open to guests at 4:00pm at the William A. O’Neill Center/ Stephen Feldman Arena at Western Connecticut State University.

Public Works will begin chip sealing the town roads the week of June 20th. Details can be found on the home page of the town website or by copying and pasting this link, https://www.eastonct.gov/home/news/chip-sealing-on-town-roads-beginning-week-of-june-20th

If you need a recycling container or yours is damaged, please contact RWS at 203-334-1660.  Also, please refer to the Easton Courier article on June 15th regarding the contamination of Easton’s recycling mainly with plastic bags https://eastoncourier.news/2022/06/15/you-might-not-be-recycling-as-well-as-you-think/ Please keep in mind that the town pays fines or rather, the tax payers do for contamination.

Prior to the pandemic, I held a number of brown bag lunches or evening programs to reach out to the people of Easton. I believe we are now at a point where it is safe to go back to these and I have planned a meeting for June 28th at 7:00 p.m. at Easton Town Hall.
