Granby people celebrated

Granby celebrated, for different reasons, the departure of a number of unique people and/or institutions who have enriched the town over recent years and who can be emulated but never replaced. Permit me to acknowledge them.

Thanks for puzzle sale support

On behalf of The Friends of Cossitt Library, thank you for supporting the jigsaw puzzle sale that was held earlier this summer at Cossitt Library. The puzzle sale was started several years ago by the late Bobbie Sullivan and we are happy to continue the tradition.

Cemetery manners, please

Something new has been happening at our lovely Granby cemetery this summer. People are deadheading their flowers and pulling yellowed leaves and weeds and leaving them under the water spigots.

Granby on a learning curve

What Connecticut Gold Coast town had a ’18—’19 mill rate of 11.369 and kept it flat for ’19—’20? It is also rated as #12 out of the 100 best towns to live in the U.S. and resident satisfaction has improved over the last three years in all departments. How did they achieve this?

Let’s support the Clark Farm

I am writing in support of Clark Farm’s application to the Planning and Zoning Commission to have a select number and type of events in their very nice looking white tent on the orchard property. The residents of Strawberry Field have issued several complaints.

Op-Ed: Granby Schools Potential School Time Change

My name is Kelly Lewis and I am a Granby resident and mother of 3 (ages 3,7 and 9). Although I believe the science behind teenagers needing more sleep, I am completely opposed to the school time changes that are being proposed by The School Start Time Task Force.

Support for June 4 referendum

I’m writing to voice my family’s support for the upcoming June 4 referendum regarding the bridge repairs and school projects. The bridge repairs are obviously crucial for access to adjoining roads in town, and their infrastructure must be repaired and maintained immediately.

Thank you from Dr. Addley

As you may know, after 11 years as the Superintendent of Schools, and 21 years in the district, I will be leaving Granby this summer to assume a new professional opportunity serving as the Superintendent for Darien Public Schools.

Superintendent of Schools search

After 21 years of service, including 11 as the Superintendent of Schools, Dr. Alan Addley has informed the board he will be leaving Granby to serve as the Superintendent of Darien Public Schools.
