If St. Patty’s Day is here, can Spring be far behind? The tenth anniversary of the Mystic Irish parade is a sure harbinger of a new season, as are the multitudes of rejuvenatory events which fill our calendars.
The big parade in Mystic steps out at 1 p.m. on Sunday, March 24—a celebration of our region’s people and progress which is aptly reflected in the words of Neil Ryan on page 9. In Westerly, a landmark theater is coming back to life, likewise the work of many volunteers and much community enthusiasm. I myself have happy memories of the United Theatre; it screened the first movie I ever saw in a real movie house, and there were many more films to come over the years before it closed in ’86! Get in line with your popcorn and learn more on page 6.
Speaking of memories–and recreation–still another revitalization is coming soon in Old Lyme, where the historic Sound View public beach may be adding a new park, and a new outlook. Get some sand between your springtime toes on page 4.
And while we’re in laudatory mode—how about our Connecticut College alumnus and his wife at the Oscars! Sean Fine, and his wife Andrea Nix Fine, took a golden statuette for best short documentary for their telling of the tale of “Inocente,” a homeless young woman fighting her way out of poverty in San Diego. See more on this inspiring story on page 10.
In short, there’s much to see and do as the snow melts and the birds sing. Let The Resident come along with you as you explore the bright new world!
