2009 In Pictures

Once again, WestportNow presents as a New Year’s gift to our readers a review of the past year through the eyes of Westporters who contributed photos, video and illustrations to WestportNow in 2009.

The year 2009 was unusually busy, and we are pleased to have been your No. 1 source for breaking and ongoing news coverage of Westport for the seventh successive year.

Dozens of persons contributed news stories, photos, and illustrations to WestportNow over the past year. The 2009 review, with video and drawings for the first time, includes almost 350 entries and represents the work of 30 photographers by name and one illustrator.

In 2009, WestportNow continued to record remarkable growth. This last week alone, while unusually busy, WestportNow had more than 90,000 page views and more than 15,000 unique visitors. No other Westport news source, print or online, delivers as many daily or weekly readers to its advertisers.

We urge you to patronize our advertisers and spread the word about WestportNow. We continue to be grateful for the public trust shown in us and look forward to continuing to serve Westport in 2010. Best New Year wishes to all WestportNow readers.

Woman’s Club Banquet Room Gets a Facelift

WestportNow.com Image
A ribbon cutting ceremony today celebrated the reopening of the Westport Woman’s Club (WWC) historic banquet room and performance space, which recently underwent a major renovation, according to Dorothy Curran, WWC president. She said the section is originally the 1866-7 Saugatuck Church Sabbath Meeting Hall, which was moved from Post Road East in 1950 and joined to the main WWC clubhouse, the 1881 Queen-Anne-style Sidney Watts House. She said the renovated room will soon be renamed as Bedford Hall in honor of the generosity of Frederick Bedford, E.T. Bedford’s son, who facilitated relocation of the WWC weekly meeting space from the second floor of the YMCA to its current location, 44 Imperial Ave. Joining in the ribbon cutting were (l-r) Kristin Fox, former state Sen. John McKinney (a Bedford descendant), Curran, First Selectman Jim Marpe, and Susan Loselle, WWC rentals director. (CLICK TO ENLARGE) Dave Matlow for WestportNow.com

Getting to Know You

WestportNow.com Image
Mathis Iacono, 18 months, of New Canaan offers a friendly hand today to Zoey, a 5-year-old Greyhound retired racer, who is now a certified therapy dog. The get-to-know-you session with therapy dogs took place in the Sheffer Rehearsal Hall at the Westport Country Playhouse following the 1 p.m.  performance of “Dog Loves Books.” It was arranged in conjunction with the Reading to Rover program at the Westport Library. Lynne Perrigo, a children’s librarian and facilitator of the Reading to Rover program, a library staple for the past 10 years, said that as many as 20 certified therapy dogs are brought to the library multiple times each year so that children can improve their reading capabilities by reading to the empathetic therapy dogs.  (CLICK TO ENLARGE) Dave Matlow for WestportNow.com
