Litcheld Pickleball Donates to Easter Egg Hunt
submitted by Bob Welch, Litchﬁeld Pickleball Association
The Litchﬁeld Pickleball Association gave $500 to support the annual Litchﬁeld Easter Egg Hunt. The Easter Egg Hunt has been run for three years by Jessica Philbrick at Roy Park in Litchﬁeld. Jessie runs the popular children’s play group, held every week during the school year in Talent Hall.This year’s Easter Egg Hunt will take place Sunday, April 13 at 1 p.m. at Roy Park. Jessica had relied on donations from cooperative merchants to obtain the prizes and gifts given out free to the children. Since the annual event has been increasingly successful, Jessica was having difﬁculty raising sufﬁcient donations and funds to put on the event. LPA was made aware of Jessica’s plight by the Litchﬁeld Recreation Commission and decided to assist Jessica to support the children of Litchﬁeld.This year’s event, as in past years, is free to all Litchﬁeld children. However, donation buckets will be left out at the food concession stand, and parents are encouraged to contribute if they can to ensure this event can be carried out in the future. The Easter Egg Hunt is for Litchﬁeld children only since both Manchester and Hudson have similar events for their residents.The Litchﬁeld Pickleball Association is a private organization dedicated to the sport of pickleball. Pickleball appeals to all age groups because it’s fast-paced but easy on the body. Pickleball is played on a 20 foot by 40 foot court, somewhat smaller than a tennis court, using solid paddles and a ball similar to a whifﬂeball. The group has a current membership of 60 individuals from Litchﬁeld and surrounding towns and plays seven days a week at Talent Hall in Litchﬁeld. Their website is LitchﬁeldPickleball.org.

Sami is Loved, Happy and Healthy
This is an update on Sami the Great Dane who was abandoned by her owner in Hudson.She’s doing very well! She was adopted and has had all of her medical needs addressed. There are so many people that need to be thanked for their time and generosity in nursing Sami back to health.First, we’d like to thank Jana McMillan, the Hudson Police Department’s Animal Control Ofﬁcer; America’s Pets of Hudson, the incredible veterinarians of Deerﬁeld Veterinary in Deerﬁeld, and last but not least, the amazing community and caring people who donated money which ensured her getting well.Sami went through ﬁve hours of surgery to remove several large mammary tumors resulting in 150 stitches and had to have several inches of her tail amputated. Sami was very malnourished and weighed only 110 pounds (10 pounds of which was tumors).Sami now weighs 130 pounds! She has made a full recovery! Sami is loved, happy and healthy. Again, thank you all so much who’ve made that difference for Sami and made this new life for her possible. We will forever be grateful.
