Governor Ned Lamont has announced that he is directing U.S. and State of Connecticut flags to be lowered to half-staff from sunrise to sunset on Saturday, December 7, 2019, in recognition of National Pearl Harbor Remembrance Day.
The national observation honors the lives lost in the attack on Pearl Harbor in 1941. Accordingly, since no flag should fly higher than the U.S. flag, all other flags – including state, municipal, corporate, or otherwise – should also be lowered during this same duration of time.
(November 27) - Richie Maybury and John Longo began organizing the first Thanksgiving "Turkey Drop-offs" in the 1990s. For the next two decades it was run by newly-retired Lt. Jeff Pechmann. Last year, Jeff announced that he was handing the job over to Firefighter Tom Paranzino, who did an outstanding job organizing active and retired firefighters for this year's deliveries of turkeys and Stop & Shop gift cards, which took place yesterday.
