The shelter at the Heritage Hills Activity Center remains open for all residents. St. Luke’s Church is serving soup and community dinner 5 to 7 p.m. and is available to store refrigerated medications and is an optimum wifi hot spot. The Somers library has power.
Work crews in town are from all over the country working with little food and sleep. Please offer them a warm drink, a bite to eat and a kind word if you can.
Election Day is tomorrow, Tuesday, Nov. 6. Power has been restored to all polling places. Everyone should report to their usual local polling place.
