Good morning, Suffield! Today is Thursday, March 21, 2013; there are 285 days left in the year.
Here's your Daily 5:
1. The Suffield Parks and Recreation Department still has space available for New York City on Your Own on April 17, but the registration deadline of Wednesday, March 27 is approaching fast. April is a beautiful time of year to visit New York City. Visit The Cloisters, a branch of the Metropolitan Museum of Art, at Fort Tryon Park, or The Guggenheim Museum on Fifth Avenue. While you are there do some shopping at Saks Fifth Avenue, then head on down to Little Italy to experience the Italian cuisine and why not visit the street vendors on Canal Street. Cost is $37 per person for round trip bus transportation, departing Suffield Middle School at 7:30 a.m. and leaving New York at 7 p.m.
2. Goodwin College in East Hartford recently announced Longevity Milestones for 32 employees with at least five years of service. Three of the honorees are from Suffield: Tamara Webb (10 years), Jerry Jarvis (five years) and Lori Jarvis (five years).
4. The National Weather Service forecast for Suffield calls for mostly cloudy skies Thursday, with a high temperature of 37. Thursday night will be mostly cloudy, with a low around 25.
