Held in the society’s gallery, the artists (who are all members of the Woman’s Club) mingled with visitors as leaders of both organizations joined in celebrating the breadth of talent on...

Sharon Hospital one of top 10 in state

cythiah@lakevillejournal.com

SHARON — Sharon Hospital has been honored this year by being left off a list — the list of hospitals that will see a reduction in Medicare reimbursements because too many patients are getting infections and being injured while hospitalized.
Sharon is one of only nine hospitals in Connecticut to be left off the list. As a result, the 78-bed acute care facility will not see the 1 percent reduction in reimbursements that other hospitals in the state will be penalized with.

cythiah@lakevillejournal.com

SHARON — Real estate and economic development were some of the top topics of 2016 in Sharon. 
The two shopping areas got new life, most notably the one on West Main Street, thanks to Rafe Churchill’s extensive work on the building that was, for many years, home to the Sharon Package Store (which has moved to the center of town, across the street from the post office) and Roaring Oaks Florist (which has moved to Lakeville).

The senior staff at the hospital remained in place, including Peter Cordeau, who has been Sharon Hospital’s CEO since last November; CFO Christian Bergeron and Lori Puff, the hospital’s chief nursing officer.

Party prep and polish for the holidays

SHARON — Looking back over The Lakeville Journal’s extensive social and fundraiser coverage throughout this year one thing can be said with confidence: The town of Sharon loves to throw a good party.
With this in mind, it should come as no surprise that Sharon is also home to two of the nicest places for one to kick back, relax, scrub up and get dolled up for the holiday party season.

SHARON — The popular J.P. Gifford Market & Catering Company in Kent expanded its scope to Sharon this year and opened J.P. Gifford’s Café over the summer. So far, the major distinction that co-owner Michael Moriarty can see is, mysteriously enough, all in the muffins.

SHARON — The sun set at just about 4:30 p.m. on Saturday, Dec. 3, and despite the darkness, which was barely relieved by the dim streetlights, Sharon revelers proved themselves to be a hardy holiday crowd. 
Merrily impervious to the dark and the nip in the air, young and old alike gathered on the Green for the annual Christmas tree lighting.
