Animal Shelter Advocates Seek Westport Top Dog

Supporters of Westport’s Animal Shelter are seeking Westport’s “top dog.”WestportNow.com Image

The group, Westport Animal Shelter Advocates (WASA), has announced a photo and essay contest to find the top canine in town as part of a fund-raiser for Westport’s municipal animal shelter.

The Representative Town Meeting (RTM) on Tuesday will consider a $95,000 appropriation request approved by the Board of Finance last month to renovate the shelter, adjacent to Westport’s sewage treatment plant.

The funds raised by WASA will supplement the town spending.

Preservation Award Winner: 24 Compo Parkway

WestportNow.com Image
The house at 24 Compo Parkway is among eight winners of the Westport Historic District Commission 2009 Preservation Awards to be presented in a Town Hall ceremony at 10 a.m. on Saturday, Sept. 12. The HDC recognized owners Marc and Tracy Prosoff for undertaking an extensive rehabilitation which enabled the historic home to be preserved. The HDC noted that its cultural significance includes stories that both Mayor Fiorello LaGuardia and actor Frederic March were once in residence. “While some may have given in to the financial temptation of tearing down and building a new structure, you have chosen to find solutions that retain, enhance and preserve the integrity of this historic home,” the HDC said.

Comings and Goings: Riverside Barber Closing But Moving

WestportNow.com Image
The Riverside Barber Shop in Westport’s Saugatuck section closes on Saturday after 82 years in the same location. The late John Santella opened the shop in 1927 and it was then owned by his son, Lou. Owner Pat Vigilio (r), the shop’s owner since November 1999, will reopen at a new location on Tuesday at 231 Post Road West at the upper level of Greg & Tony’s Salon. Vigilio announced that he is donating the barber pole to the Westport Historical Society. Pictured with him are Allen Raymond, a longtime customer, town historian, and a past president of the Society, and Tina, a hair stylist who will also move to the new location. Riverside Barber and adjacent DeRosa’s Restaurant are making way for the Saugatuck Center development by the Gault family. (CLICK TO ENLARGE) Dave Matlow for WestportNow.com
