The Norwalk Common Council will take a final vote on the proposed Plastic Checkout Bag Ban Ordinance on Tuesday. Your support at this meeting will make a huge difference.
Norwalk residents use about 30 million plastic bags a year, which are no longer recyclable in blue bins. Over 100,000 plastic bags end up in the Long Island Sound every year, where they break down into microplastics and are ingested by marine life. Read more here about how microplastics are entering our food chain. For answers to commonly asked questions about the ordinance click here.
If you have family members, friends or business associates who have not yet signed the petition, please forward this email so they can sign, too.
Kick off the New Year by taking a walk in Silvermine on Saturday January 5th! Meet at 8:00am at the Silvermine Elementary School parking lot, and embark on a walk through the scenic neighborhood by 8:05am. The walk will conclude with an optional breakfast at the Silvermine Market. Should you have any questions about this month’s walk, please contact Deborah at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Inclement weather does not cancel the walk. Wear comfortable walking shoes and weather appropriate clothing. Well behaved dogs on leashes are welcome to join! We’ll provide information on how to warm up and safe walking guidelines.
This walk is hosted by the Healthy for Life Project, a coalition of organizations, agencies, and community members from the Greater Norwalk area.

One of the oldest traditions in Silvermine is the arrival of Santa Claus by antique fire truck on Christmas Eve. And, having received official word from the North Pole, we are happy to report that once again, Santa will arrive at the Silvermine Arts Center around 3:30 on Christmas Eve.
Festivities begin promptly at 3:30 p.m, so don’t be late. As usual, there will be lots of hot chocolate for everyone while season’s greetings are exchanged by all who attend.
How it works:
Drop your children’s gifts off on December 24th, between 10:00 and 2:00 p.m., at 297 Silvermine Ave,which is an antique red home near GrayBarns Inn. You’ll find a large box awaiting the arrival of your child’s gift.
Label the gift with your child’s name in large block letters. Tie multiple gifts together. (Occasionally, Santa has been known to forget his spectacles and he doesn’t want any child to worry about being forgot!
Later that day, arrive with your family at the Silvermine Arts Center parking lot at 3:30pm You’ll hear the jolly sound of Santa’s elves ringing bells on the fire truck. For the next hour or so, the air will be filled with the merry sound of children’s excited voices as gifts are opened and admired. And yes, Santa sent a message again this year, saying the elves will be handing out candy canes to all those youngsters waiting to hear their names called!
Don’t miss this annual tradition cherished for generations. Plan to join us on Monday, December 24th at 3:30 p.m. at the Silvermine Arts Center!
