Greetings! 

 

Final Reminder:  Preservation Celebration, Sunday, September 23rd 2-5PM. 

 

Congressman Chris Murphy is confirmed. Tulmeadow ice cream and other local delights are confirmed.  Ragtime Ramblers are confirmed.  Weather is CONFIRMED J

 

Plan a great day on Sunday:  Go to the Simsbury Fly-In in early part of the day http://www.simsburyairport.com/flyin.php, and to the Preservation Celebration in the afternoon http://www.keepthewoods.org/invite.html.  Everyone is invited; RSVP if possible to events@ethelwalker.org 

 

Fabulous MAPS and newly marked trails

 

There will be wonderful color MAPS of the property available on Sunday - a lot of you have asked about a map to help you learn your way around.  There will be guided walks on the trails.  As a special treat, the Ethel Walker School hopes to feature some riders jumping the cross-country course in the horse pasture next to the event.    

 

ENVIRONMENTAL EDUCATION INITIATIVE

 

Many people are pushing to include environmental education as part of the “NO CHILD LEFT BEHIND” initiative.  It would be a wonderful combination of “NO CHILD LEFT BEHIND” and “NO CHILD LEFT INSIDE”.  I know many of you support these educational initiatives very strongly.  

To find out more, and learn how you can advocate for this legislation, visit: http://www.plt.org/cms/test/21_23_195.html.  Contact your legislators in Washington!

 

Other important information:

 

Wednesday, September 19th, 7:00, Simsbury High School cafeteria.  Public Hearing on the Plan of Conservation and Development (POCD).

The POCD is the “DNA” for a town, and serves to guide land use policy for the next 10 years.  It’s really important!

The POCD can be read on-line here:  http://www.simsbury-ct.gov/Public_Documents/SimsburyCT_POCD/index

Come to the public hearing to hear more and have an opportunity to speak.  If you cannot attend, send your comments to Hiram Peck at Town Hall.  

 

Finally, the first “in-town” email went out earlier.  If you did not receive an “in town” email from me but would like to in the future, reply to this and I will either add you to the list  - or see if I misspelled or misplaced your email in my first attempt! 

 

NEXT KTW MEETING:  October 17th, 7:00 PM, Maple Tree Café.  Other events and conferences will be announced prior to the KTW meeting.

 

See you Wednesday and/or SUNDAY!!
