Metro-North has started its holiday Saturday specials from Westport’s Saugatuck station.
The nonstop trains to 125th Street and Grand Central Terminal leave Saugatuck at 9:20 a.m., 10:20 a.m., 11:20 a.m. and 12:20 p.m. and will run until Dec. 27.
Returning nonstop trains leave Grand Central at 3:04 p.m., 4 p.m., 5 p.m., 6 p.m., 7:04 p.m., 8 p.m., 9 p.m., 10:07 p.m., and 11:07 p.m.
The trains leaving at 4, 5 and 8 p.m. will also run on Sundays until Dec. 28. Tickets should be purchased at the station since tickets purchased on the train incur a service charge of about $5.
Two Westport students, Maya and Layla, had a “Stuff a Bear” party this weekend to benefit Westport’s Al’s Angels charity group. All of the proceeds and stuffed animals will go to the children in need helped by the Angels. The effort produced more than 200 bears. (CLICK TO ENLARGE) Stephen Rubin for WestportNow.com
