A Snowy Ride
Snow, Flags, and Protest
Westport’s Ruth Steinkraus Cohen Bridge was decked out in flags of U.N. members today in honor of Westport Weston First Night. A brief morning snow squall did not deter a weekly Saturday morning demonstration by residents seeking the withdrawal of U.S. troops from Iraq. (CLICK TO ENLARGE) WestportNow.com photo

“TRASHIN’ FASHION” FASHION SHOW
“Trashin’ Fashion” Fashion Show aims to provide its participants with the chance to design and create costumes out of recycled, inorganic and organic materials. It’s an opportunity to make something wonderful from those things that are left over, and usually thrown away. Creatively conceived and executed apparel will be unleashed on the exclusive Westport fashion scene. Directed by Daniel Lanzilotta and Irina Simeonova of Gibbs College http://www.gibbsnorwalk.edu assisted by Staples student Laura Berk.

THE KEY INGREDIENTS
Auditorium, 7-7:45, p.m. 8-8:45 p.m.
Back by overwhelming popular demand, “The Key Ingredients” consist of A.J. Gundel, Scarlett Lee Moore, Suzanne Sheridan, and EdWard Thompson. If these names sound familiar, then you are obviously a music fan who lives in Fairfield County. Individually these musicians have made solid solo careers for themselves but have come together to give their unique sound to a repertoire that includes folk, gospel, and blues music. Their powerful blending of three-part harmonies will have you yelling for more.
