Last night(May 11), I attended my children’s play in Ansonia High School at 6 p.m. to watch them perform Beauty and the Beast. It was an absolutely amazing production. Those children, teachers, parents and volunteers worked so hard for five months for this event. It was a full house and they are also performing again tonight at 6 p.m. and Saturday at 2 p.m.
Once the play finished, I attended the Board of Aldermen meeting on the budget that the Board of Education presented. I can say it was a very informative and civil meeting with plenty of questions and answers.
I truly believe that the Board of Education of the City of Ansonia is the foundation of our town.
