Falls Village

Route 7 in North Canaan and Falls Village is expected to open at around 4:30 p.m. today, Monday Aug. 19. The road has been closed since a fatal one-car accident at the intersection of Route 7 and Sand Road on Sunday night, Aug. 18, at about 10:30 p.m.

The road has been closed to allow the power company to repair electric wires that were damaged when a 2011 GMC Sierra driven by Matthew Holderman, 46, of North Canaan hit the power lines. A full account of the crash will appear in the Aug. 22 Lakeville Journal. Our deepest sympathies are extended to the Holderman family.

cynthiah@lakevillejournal.com

FALLS VILLAGE — It wasn’t only the excellent baked goods that enticed community members to visit the Lee H. Kellogg School last Wednesday, Feb. 8 (although the cherry Danish was certainly enticing).
The real draw that day was the annual Read Aloud event sponsored by the Northwest Connecticut Chamber of Commerce and sponsored by the Alcoa Foundation. Every year, adults come to area schools and read books purchased for the library by the chamber. The national program is designed to help children learn to love reading.
