Week In Review: Peace Corps Family, Barefoot Truth, Food Trucks

A Recap Of The Week’s Top Stories On Stonington-Mystic Patch

The first full week of fall felt well a little like fall and a little like summer with some muggy weather. It certainly looks like fall around Stonington, Mystic and Pawcatuck though. Pumpkins are popping up on doorsteps and the leaves are starting to turn colors. Share your photos of fall in Stonington, Mystic and Pawcatuck in Pics & Clips.

Even though the weather is getting cooler the Saturday Stonington Village Farmers Market is still going on outside near the Town Dock, but not everyone is happy about the farmers market's use of the Town Dock. First Bite Bakery would also like to be able to use the area to sell items out of a food truck on Saturdays. Take the poll and share your thoughts on whether or not First Bite Bakery should be able to use the Town Dock area during the farmers markets.

This week we had some great blog posts from local bloggers. Kate Harrison wrote about eco-friendly ways to make wedding memories with clever keepsakes and Andrea McKenna Brankin who is currently in Singapore wrote about holidays and the ghosts of the past.

Andrea isn’t the only local resident far from home, two Mystic brothers are currently overseas in the Peace Corps. Their older brother also served in the Peace Corps.

Will Evans from the popular local band Barefoot Truth is setting out on a solo project, but he needs your help in getting his first album made.

At the dock at the Mystic River Park on Friday, the Mystic Fire Department celebrated the arrival of its new fireboat with a boat dedication ceremony.
