Good morning, West Hartford! Today is Monday, Sept. 16, 2013; there are 106 days left in the year.
So this weekend, I took my 10-year-old stepdaughter and her friend to the One Direction movie, “This is Us.” And I don’t know what’s worse.
That I went or that I enjoyed it.
I feel shame.
Here are five things going on in the area this week:
1. The West Hartford Board of Education meets on Tuesday at 7 p.m. There will be a town hall-meeting at 6 p.m. for people wishing to provide their input on the search for a new superintendent of schools.
2. The new the Gallaudet-Clerc Education Center, a 62,000-square-feet LEED certifiable building and the first in Connecticut specifically designed for deaf and hard of hearing individuals, at the American School for the Deaf will be unveiled on Tuesday at 10 a.m. Very cool.
3. The Conard and Hall High Schools football season starts on Saturday. Conard takes on Newington at home at McKee Stadium at 1 p.m. Hall has Glastonbury at 1:30 p.m. at Chalmers Field.
4. The Noah Webster House & West Hartford Historical Society invites the public to Conversations: A Community Forum. Eric Deggans, author of Race-baiter: How the Media Wields Dangerous Words to Divide a Nation will kick off “Conversations: A Community Forum” with a discussion of the book. This event will take place at the Playhouse on Park (244 Park Road, West Hartford) on Wednesday at 7 p.m.5. La Petite France has a special BYOW Farm to Table Dinner on Sept. 19.
