Thanksgiving 2021: Keeping score
Since the mid-1990s I even have been the official for an area softball team. once the 2020 season was referred to as off thanks to the pandemic, I incomprehensible the action on the sector, yet because of the prime quality individuals, I worked with.
therefore once the softball season started once more this past might, I had an enormous smile on my face the primary night of the season.

Applause for theater supporters
There were several things I couldn’t do due to the COVID pandemic; outlay quality, indoor time with family and friends were scarce. Luckily, my mate and i — and our immediate family — have stayed healthy throughout.
For me, though, the revival of live performances at the bow, Stamford’s longest-running and solely, year-around manufacturing theater, is one issue I’m glad for this Thanksgiving.
The theater is my life … not simply a career or job … therefore obtaining back to figure with dozens of artistic artists to form the programming our community expects, was a blessing. a standard year for the United States suggests some reasonable activity at our Sterling Farms Theatre field 340-plus days a year, therefore I incomprehensible my theater family that features performers, crew, musicians, and patrons — however currently we’re back.
This revival wouldn’t be potential while not the unimaginable generosity of our community. many people, businesses, foundations, and additional stepped up to assist. New program support from the Connecticut workplace of the humanities was created potential by our state legislators;
federal leaders Richard Blumenthal, Jim Himes, and Chris white potato helped produce new funding support for theaters across the country.
inventive luminaries Kristen Anderson-Lopez and Amanda inexperienced, trade leaders like role player Cohen (MTI) and theater colleagues across the country — particularly members of the Yankee Association of Community Theatre — supported efforts to urge our theater lights burning once more.
On behalf of everybody at the bow, since it’s Thanksgiving, I thank everybody UN agency supports live theater in our community, and round the world.

An idea 1st mentioned in 2018 became a reality in 2021. A repository to acknowledge Stratford Veterans UN agency have served our country honorably was the dream. In the Gregorian calendar month of 2020, a website was offered by the city administration to the origination members. With abundant support from civil authority Laura Hoydick, Stratford construction, and a multi-competent cluster of volunteers, the Stratford Veterans repository was created. A grand gap on Sabbatum, Nov. 13, role-player rave reviews and praise for the new attraction at Boothe graveyard. I even have abundant to be glad for this Thanksgiving.
However, the one issue I’m most glad for is the productive action of our 2018 dream and therefore the support of such a large amount of people, businesses, and city employees. Thanks and Happy Thanksgiving to any or all.
