Aububon does the monster mash at annual Kids Day

SHARON — The Sharon Audubon Center held a Halloween party, and thankfully no birds drew any Alfred Hitchcock inspiration. 
Kids Day at the Audubon, celebrating the weird, the webbed and the witchy, went off without a hitch on Sunday, Oct. 30 — until the rain poured down during the costume parade. Up until that moment, however, Center Director Sean Grace estimated 500 guests were enjoying the fall festival — transported there from the parking area on a massive tractor-pulled hay ride.

What the Hotchkiss Library currently provides for the children of the town and the elderly, with the reading groups, gallery shows, guest lectures, it’s unbelievable — especially for a little tiny library in a little town.”
