And this, for many, may be the most important event of the week: on Tuesday Dec. 10 from 6:30 p.m. to 8 p.m., the Stonington Free Library is presenting a Workshop on the Affordable Care Act & Access Health CT. The interactive workshop, developed by the Universal Health Care Foundation of CT, helps folks learn about the Affordable Care Act and CT's new insurance marketplace. In addition to learning the basics about the law, you'll walk away with great resources for future use and a clear view of what's ahead.
