In Honor of Someone She Didn’t Know

Westporter Elizabeth Beeby recently erected this sign in Winslow Park in honor of longtime Westporter Robert H. Bradley who died in an auto accident Sept. 14. She never met him but happened to see the accident while driving by on I -95 and attended his memorial service with a friend. Beeby, an artist, was so moved by the outpouring of affection for Bradley that she decided to create this sign in his honor. It is her hope the town might name a park path or erect a permanent plaque on a tree in his memory. Miggs Burroughs for WestportNow.com

Health District Offers Flu Vaccine in Emergency Training Drill

The Westport Weston Health District is trying something new this year with its annual flu shots it’s offering the vaccine in two simulated emergency mass vaccinations in October and November.wwhd100.jpg

(Editor’s Note: In light of the flu vaccine shortage the Health District canceled the first clinic and put the second on hold. See update on WestportNow Oct. 5, 2003)

Since the Sept. 11, 2001 attacks, the district and members of its emergency management team have been working hard to develop an emergency response plan for the towns of Westport and Weston as it relates to terrorism. 

The plan’s purpose is to prepare for a major public health emergency, such as a pandemic flu outbreak. But in order to evaluate the effectiveness of the plan, district officials need to put it into action. 

So this year, the health district will change the venue of the community flu clinics to incorporate components of the emergency response plan, as well as a drill exercise.

Lady in Pink

A lady in pink was selling pink lemonade on Westport’s Turkey Hill Road North over the weekend and this young man and his mother were so impressed, they had to stop. They found Alanna dancing, playing the guitar, twirling, singing, waving and hula-hooping, all in pink. She made the sale. Jennifer Jackson-Martins for WestportNow.com
