Pet of The WeekThis week from the Connecticut Humane Society’s Waterford Branch we have Foxy!! Foxy is a 6 year old Chihuahua. She is a female. Foxy has been in the shelter for about 2 weeks and would love to be able to find a home in time for the holidays. She would do well in a condo, apartment, or single family home and she is good with older children. Foxy is a very sweet girl that enjoys being around people and enjoys snuggling on the couch. If you have any questions on Foxy 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!!!
Santa Claus is coming… to Quaker Hill!
Friday and Saturday evening, December 20th and 21st , Santa will be touring the village with the Quaker Hill Fire Company. You may request a stop at your home so Santa may say "hi" to your little one*.
Routes and times are as follows:
On Friday the 20th: 6 – 8 pm we are traveling the north part of Quaker Hill which includes all of Old Colchester Rd. and everything from the intersection with Old Norwich Rd., north on Route 32 to the Montville town line.
On Saturday the 21st: 6 – 8 pm we are traveling the south part from Old Colchester/Old Norwich intersection south to the NL town line including all of Bloomingdale Rd.
*Due to time constraints Santa cannot come inside your home; rather we ask that you meet us
outside towards the road. You may request a stop but specific times are difficult to determine
given the number of stops and routes we have to follow.
Please call the Quaker Hill Fire Company to schedule a stop from Santa:
