“On-Line Schooling Grows…” see the New York Times
About 120 people showed up at the Inn at Woodstock Hill to attend the Board of Education’s Meet & Greet social gathering tonight (7-9 pm, Thursday night, January 31st). Luminaries included First Selectman, Allan Walker, Academy Headmaster Richard Foye, Lindsay and Jeff Paul, Steve Adams, Jeff Gordon, Gail Dickinson, Barbara Rich, Linda Bernardi, Sue McDowell, Peg Murphy, Avis Spalding, Suzanne Woodward, Andre Bessette, Liz Francis, Julie Anderson, Brenda Van Damme, John Rauh, Bill Sowka, Kevin Johnston, Sandra Fredrickson, Lindsay Puliafico, Sharon Mulvey, Cindy Kelly, Dennis and Marilyn Pilipaitis, Dave and Judith Hosmer, Scott Young, Ruth Ambrozaitis, all members of the Board of Education, Superintendent Francis Baran, WES Principal Viktor Toth, members of the Planning & Zoning Commission, members of the Board of Finance, MFATF committee members, teachers, parents, and, YES, many Cafe’ers including John and Becki Leavitt.
Entertainment was provided by the Middle School Jazz Band lead by music director and conductor, Tim Cassell. As one who played serious trumpet during junior high and high school, I can say that the jazz band was high quality and entertainment destined to be invited to perform at many future Meet & Greet social events.
