FALSL VILLAGE — The vintage race car parade rolled through Lime Rock, Lakeville and Salisbury on a bright summer afternoon, Thursday, Aug. 30, fetching up in downtown Falls Village.

There were more than 100 cars in the parade, with an emphasis on Bugattis. Mitch Conroy, the parade organizer from Lime Rock Park, said it might be the biggest gathering of Bugattis ever in the Northeast, if not the world. More than 30 of the cars were Bugattis; more are expected to take part in the weekend-long Historic Festival event.

We made some calls and figured out they belonged to the Time Out Foundation down the street.

karaw@lakevillejournal.com

LAKEVILLE — Few sports require as much endurance as water polo. For the match, athletes are not allowed to touch the floor of the pool at any time. They must tread water or swim and can only rest during timeouts.
The Hotchkiss School girls water polo season is now at its halfway point. The team has yet to chalk up a win, but coach Laura Barrosse-Antle is optimistic.
