The business was owned and operated by Ed and Laurel Powers for 33 years but is now in the hands of Sally Hambleton and Ken Harper.

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.
