On October 26th, the ABC scholars had a opportunity to use their new bicycles so generously donated and refurbished by Lou Kozar, owner of one of New Canaan's newest businesses, Cycles on Call (located at 96 Park Street, just off Cherry Street). The scholars would get some exercise on a beautiful fall day when we ventured out to Trumbull, Connecticut to experience the old Housatonic rail line that has been converted to bike trails. The trail overlooks the winding Pequonnock River for much of its 3.4 miles. Rapids and distinctive rock outcrops add interest to the trail. We try to get the scholars out at least once a month as a group; to build some camaraderie and experience a cultural, historic and fun activity. Upcoming events include a trip to the Intrepid Museum in New York City, skiing this winter in Vermont and a visit to Gettysburg, Pennsylvania in the spring.
Fall Outing to Housatonic Rail-Trail
On Saturday, October 5th, members of the New Canaan Beautification League worked with the ABC boys and resident directors John and Laura Walsh to spruce up the property around the house. They helped with pruning, weeding and trimming -- the House has never looked better! A huge thank you to the members of the NC Beautification League.
An additional shout-out to the 15 or so men from the New Canaan Fire Department for their enthusiastic help in cleanup - thank you!
