Pet of The Week

This week from the Connecticut Humane Society’s Waterford branch we have Buster!!!  Buster is a 3 month old Bluetick Coonhound mix.  He is a neutered male.  Buster has been with us for over a week and he is a high energy puppy.  He needs an owner that had the time and energy to give him so he can be the best puppy around.  Buster would benefit from positive training, exercise and socialization.  If you have any questions on Buster or any of the other animals at the shelter, give us a call at (860) 442 8583, check out our website at www.cthumane.org or stop in at 169 Old Colchester Road in Quaker Hill.  Don’t forget to check out our Facebook page!!!

Lobster Stew Dinner
For the past 48 years, a tradition of Summer Suppers at Niantic Community Church has attracted locals, summer folks and day trippers alike. The last supper of the season is a lobster stew dinner that is a rare commodity in these parts according to, Maine native Sonya Hoisington. She lives in Niantic now but makes a trip to her hometown in Maine to raid her cousins lobster boat just in time to drive her catch back to Connecticut, meet up with co-chair Kim Birk and create a lobster stew with generous portions of lobster in each serving. The meal ($20) includes a salad, corn on the cob and brownies for dessert. Alternative menu offerings for the dinner include taco or chicken salads ($12) as well as a children’s menu ($5) of hot dogs, chips and dessert.  Advance tickets are required for the August 12, 5:30 p.m., dinner and are available now by calling the church office or by calling Sonya Hoisington at (860)235-0170.
        “If you’ve never had fresh Maine lobster stew, here’s your chance,” said Hoisington. “From the Maine lobsterman, right to your Niantic table.”
        Take-out is always available as well as seating in our air conditioned dining hall.             Niantic Community Church is located at 170 Pennsylvania Ave., Niantic.

The Avery-Copp House will mark the 200th anniversary of the August 1814 British assault on southeastern Connecticut coastal communities in the War of 1812 by hosting an event on August 9 from 11 AM to 3 PM. The public is invited to meet a Groton soldier from the period, look inside his tent, learn about his weapons and watch him fire his musket. The public will also discover what soldiers did for fun and what they ate. This is a free event. Families with children are welcome and no reservations are required.

The Avery-Copp House is located at 154 Thames Street in the Groton Bank National Register Historic District. Built in the colonial style in the early 1800s and Victorianized at the turn of the last century, the house tells the story of generations of an American family that lived here for 200 years. Furnishings are original and testify to Yankee thrift, inventiveness and hard work, with household items reflecting the fruits of the family’s labor and travel. Two Victorian gazebos sit above the house on the terraced lawns overlooking the Thames River.

The house will be open for tours during the event. Admission is $5 for adults. Children age 12 and under are free. The house is also open for tours Friday through Sunday, 11 AM to 3 PM, through October 12. For more information, call 860-445-1637 or email averycopphouse@sbcglobal.netor visit on the web at www.AveryCoppHouse.org
