Dancing at the Y

WestportNow.com Image
A group of middle school students from China, visiting Westport this week as part of the SPIRAL International Chinese/American Culture Exchange Program, visited the Westport Weston Family Y today. They toured the Y facility and enjoyed basketball in the gym and, for some of the students, a special dance class led by Danette Meigel-Cahr (r). The tour was organized by Kana Higuchi,  a student ambassador for SPIRAL and high school advisory member of the Westport Weston Family Y board of directors. (CLICK TO ENLARGE) Contributed photo

New Levitt: Cheers, Thanks, Thrills, and Jose

By James Lomuscio

Tributes, thanks, tears of joy and standing ovations marked the inaugural season of the new $9 million Levitt Pavilion tonight—and that was before headliner Jose Feliciano of Weston, donating his performance for free, even took to the stage.

The pavilion itself, named after the late Mortimer Levitt and his wife Mimi, who arrived on a golf cart, was the star, reborn after 40 years of providing free, riverfront summer concerts to more than 1.5 million persons.

A total of 1,800 first come, first served free tickets were made available for tonight; however, a much larger number seemed to fill the lawn between the new entryway replete with restrooms, a concession stand and storage and the new pavilion band shell, its cathedral roof looking like a boat’s sail and reminding some of the Sydney Opera House.

Some would-be concert goers had even set up beach chairs on the new walkway that runs along the perimeter of the peninsula in the Saugatuck River on which the Levitt stands.
