Ethan Beaulac's Eagle Scout project has proved essential for dance students and teachers during COVID-19

A big congratulations to Ridgefield Conservatory of Dance student Ethan Beaulac who earned his Eagle Scout Honor award this week!

Achieving the rank of Eagle Scout is no small feat and Ridgefield Conservatory of Dance (RCD) dancer Ethan Beaulac, a long-time Boy Scout of the Scatacook Yankee Council, looked no further than the nonprofit dance studio to partake in a project worthy of the esteemed rank. 

Ethan built benches, complete with cubby storage units for the nonprofit dance studio. Ethan’s design has helped Ridgefield Conservatory adhere to CDC guidelines during the pandemic. This week, he earned what he worked so hard to achieve, he was named an Eagle Scout. 

"When it was time for my Eagle Scout project, I knew I wanted it to be for the Ridgefield Conservatory of Dance. I wanted to give back to this amazing community that helped foster my creativity and I have been fortunate to be a part of for many years," Ethan said.

RCD Executive Director Amy Piantaggini, who was by Ethan's side when he received his esteemed badge said, "We are grateful to Ethan for his efforts and dedication to RCD through his Eagle Scout project, which provided crucial safe storage management for students during the Covid-19 Pandemic. Dance on, Ethan!"

RCD Chairman of the Board Mr. Howard Turner, also founding Chairman of Ridgefield Academy, who holds the status of Eagle Scout himself remarked, “From one Eagle Scout to another, thank you, Ethan, for making your Eagle Scout project something so valuable and helpful to RCD where you’ve been such an active, long-term member of our community. Being an Eagle Scout epitomizes service to others — congratulations on your commitment and achievement!”

Ridgefield High School Seniors Evelyn Carr and Liam Huff recently completed internships at Thrown Stone Theatre Company. The RHS intern program offers students the opportunity to spend the last weeks of their senior year working for a local business in their field of interest.

As Thrown Stone Scholars, Carr and Huff got a rigorous mix of administration administration dramaturgy, completing a digital inventory of the company's costumes and props, and reading a new play every day. They interviewed company leadership about their roles and experiences, and toured the three venues of Thrown Stone’s upcoming season, The Suburbs. As a final project the interns prepared a play of their choice for production with a detailed “prompt book” that described every cue and design element. Thrown Stone Company Manager Pippa Walton designed and led the program this year.

The series, established last summer to provide easy access to live quality performances during the pandemic, quickly developed a following by many in the community. “We were fortunate to be able to collaborate with our friends at KTM&HC to present great live music outdoors at a time when people could not be indoors.

The series was so well received, that we look forward to doing it again starting on Monday, June 28th!” says RSO Executive Director, Laurie Kenagy, “This is a wonderful way to come as you are and enjoy the lovely setting and sounds KTM&HC and RSO have to offer!”

Why Small Businesses Matter in Ridgefield: S Freda Corp. https://news.hamlethub.com/ridgefield/places/69664-why-small-businesses-matter-s-freda-corp69664-why-small-businesses-matter-s-freda-corp https://news.hamlethub.com/ridgefield/places/69664-why-small-businesses-matter-s-freda-corp69664-why-small-businesses-matter-s-freda-corp

Why Small Businesses Matter

Shop small, do big things for your community

Why Small Businesses Matter puts a spotlight on the local merchants who donate their time, talent, goods, and services for the betterment of our community. The shop local movement spreads virally as local businesses who are “tagged” have the opportunity to share their story!

You're IT S Freda Corp.!

Three questions with Shannon Freda, founder of S Freda Corp.

What is your best-selling product/service?

Our stamped concrete has been our best-selling product by far. With the pandemic, and people spending more time at home, homeowners began looking for ways to upgrade their outdoor living space. We’ve received innumerable amount of requests for stamped concrete pool decks, patios, and walkways. Stamped concrete is great because it simulates the look of pavers or wood, with the durability and lifespan of actual concrete.

How many local businesses do you use to support your business (products and services) and can you name them?

Growing up in Ridgefield definitely instills a sense of community in you, so once I became a business owner, it was only natural to support other locally-owned businesses. Some of those suppliers are Ridgefield Supply, Ridgefield Hardware, Carroll Construction, Personal Touch Welcome, and EZ Moving.

Have you "reimagined" your small business?

The pandemic certainly brought changes that no business owner could have predicted. I think it’s safe to say that all small businesses had to pivot during the pandemic and get creative with how they conduct their day-to-day operations. Before the pandemic, we primarily focused on commercial projects; however, with the increased demand for residential projects, we have shifted gears and now serve both residential and commercial clients.

Shannon nominates EZ Moving owned by Ezra Zimmerman in Ridgefield for another business to be featured next!

S Freda Corp. is located at 415 Main Street, Suite H in Ridgefield. Visit S Freda Corp. online here, and make sure to check out their Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram pages as well!

HamletHub thanks Fairfield County Bank for making our Why Small Businesses Matter series possible!

Peter Parley Schoolhouse Welcomes Visitors on Sunday, June 27 https://news.hamlethub.com/ridgefield/places/69814-peter-parley-schoolhouse-welcomes-visitors-on-sunday-june-2769814-peter-parley-schoolhouse-welcomes-visitors-on-sunday-june-27 https://news.hamlethub.com/ridgefield/places/69814-peter-parley-schoolhouse-welcomes-visitors-on-sunday-june-2769814-peter-parley-schoolhouse-welcomes-visitors-on-sunday-june-27

Peter Parley Schoolhouse opens on Sunday, June 27 from 1 to 4 pm

The Peter Parley Schoolhouse — officially the West Lane School — will be open to visitors for the first time since 2019 on Sunday, June 27, from 1 to 4 p.m. (Last Sunday afternoon open houses will continue monthly through October.)

Originally built in the mid-18th Century, the schoolhouse for the West Lane district was replaced with the larger current building in the early 19th Century. Its informal name, the Peter Parley Schoolhouse, pays tribute to Samuel G. Goodrich, who attended the school from 1799 to 1803 and later wrote a series of popular textbooks for children under the pen name, Peter Parley.

The school served students of the district until 1915, when it was closed and its children were transferred to the new and modern East Ridge School.

Still owned by the Town of Ridgefield, the schoolhouse at the intersection of West Lane, South Salem and Silver Spring Roads was restored and maintained as a small museum by the Ridgefield Garden Club, which transferred the responsibility for it to the Ridgefield Historical Society in 2012. Desks, typical of the kind that would have been used more than a century ago, fill the classroom whose walls offer information about Ridgefield’s one-room schools and other aspects of its history. Displays include some of the textbooks young Ridgefield scholars might have used.

As was the case when it was in use as a school, the building does not have running water or sanitary facilities; the outhouse is long gone.

Jack and Sally Sanders, who help oversee the schoolhouse for the Ridgefield Historical Society, will be on hand to welcome guests and answer questions.

The open house program is supported by Fairfield County Bank.

The Ridgefield High School Track and Field team has qualified for the Nike Track Nationals at historic Hayward Field in Eugene, Oregon! This is a difficult feat to accomplish and the runners on the team have been working hard over the past 4 years to rise to this level of competition. Only the very best high school athletes in the entire US are invited to attend and we have 10 Ridgefield runners who have qualified (6 boys and 4 girls).

"This is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for the seniors on the team who have missed out on a year and a half of competitions and for the underclassmen to get valuable experience. Due to their unwavering dedication to training throughout the pandemic, we think we stand a good chance of setting a State record at Nationals and finally putting Ridgefield on the record books for Connecticut," explains Larry Dunn, co-president of RHS Cross Country and Track Booster Club. 

Dunn explains that due to the uncertainty around competitions this year and the unprecedented economic conditions, "we did not do our traditional fundraising last spring, summer, fall or winter.  Our team could really use the community support to make this journey more affordable for both the athletes and the coaches."

You can support the athletes and their accomplishments by making a donation HERE.

The current list of athletes slated to attend are:

Amit Markos

Charlie King

Chuckie Namiot

Ben Mickool

Liam Carcich

Steven Hergenrother

Madison Mueller
