Each month we publish a new “What’s New at Ross Bread” shingle.  This black and white colonial sign is posted around the bakery and calls attention to Ross Bread News: seasonal items, new breads, monthly specials, etc.  This month, “What’s new at Ross Bread is our Transition of Ownership.”

After 5 years we are handing over our beloved bakery keys to our fabulously talented Head Baker, Haley Scott, who will continue as Head Baker and now the Bakery’s General Manager.

Chef Haley first came to Ross Bread in 2016 as a Pastry Arts student at The Culinary Institute of America in Hyde Park.  Even when she was still a student, her skill and dedication to the craft were undeniable.  Immediately after her graduation, we hired her back. In 2018 we promoted her to Head Baker. While our little bakery had always been known for quality breads and pastries, Haley improved our consistency, beauty and flavor.  

Two Ridgefield entrepreneurs, Truitt Bell and Phil Murray have teamed up to acquire the bakery. We are so confident that Ross Bread will thrive under the leadership of these three experienced restaurant professionals that we will remain fractional investors in their new venture.  The new ownership plans to keep the bakery the same place you know and love.

Ross Bread was founded in 2009 by a baking enthusiast, Ross Schneiderman.  In 2015 he sold the bakery to us.  We updated the bakery’s interior, logo, and packaging. We partnered with Stumptown Coffee, and doubled down on the bakery’s reputation for all things organic, natural and high craft. 

The result was a bakery that grew in popularity and reputation. Just last month, Ross Bread was voted “Best Bakery in Ridgefield” By Ridgefield Magazine.   We have always thought we did a nice job.  It makes us happy to know others in the community think so as well. 

Striving to be part of the Ridgefield Community has been top of mind for these past five years. We want to thank our community partners:  Ridgefield High School, Abilities and Beyond, Meals on Wheels, and The Hickories, and thank our wholesale partners: Mike’s Organics in Stamford, and Daniel at Union Hall in North Salem.   

We want to thank our staff: 24 hardworking men and women who arrive as early as 2 AM to ensure our bakery case and bread rack are full each morning.

We want to thank our four children, each of whom worked at the bakery for some length of time.  You were good sports about the long hours.  We know you will miss having unlimited access to cookie dough in fridge #4, but having us at home when you wake up on the weekends will be a treat for all of us. 

And finally, we want to thank our customers for waiting in line, buying our breads, and filling our bakery each day with happy voices.  It is always a rush of joy and pride to walk into the café and find a line out the door, and every table filled.  We look forward to joining you at one of the little tables in the back as customers, as we break bread together and celebrate the next generation of Ross Bread.

In honor of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Day, U.S. Senator Chris Murphy (D-Conn.) announced on Monday the 15 winning essays of his fourth annual ‘Martin Luther King, Jr. Day Essay Challenge.’ This year, Murphy received close to 1,500 entries from elementary, middle, and high school students from across Connecticut reflecting on Dr. King’s dream and their own aspirations. 

Among the winners is Ridgefield High School 9th grader Kavya Podila who writes, "In my life, I'm glad I live in a place where diverse races and communities are welcome. However, I recognize that other parts of the country are different... in the 21st century, society still fails to realized that we are all human. So, my aspiration for the nation is acceptance." You can read the complete essay here.

A complete list of winning essays, pictures and videos can be viewed below. Click on each student’s name to download his or her essay. In addition to being available below, the winners are on display in Murphy’s Hartford office. 

“Today, we reflect on Dr. King’s legacy and his fight for justice and equality. Although his work is not yet complete, the United States is a better place because of Dr. King. These essays submitted from students across Connecticut sharing their hopes and dreams show that his legacy is still inspiring future generations,” said Murphy. “It’s hard to pick just a few, but I hope everyone takes the time to read these essays by students who remain committed to the ideals that Dr. King preached. I’m confident that if they stay engaged in their communities and continue to fight for what they believe in, we will get closer to fulfilling Dr. King’s dream.”

Genesis Belanger Opens May 17 at The Aldrich Contemporary Art Museum https://news.hamlethub.com/ridgefield/places/65409-genesis-belanger-opens-may-17-at-the-aldrich-contemporary-art-museum65409-genesis-belanger-opens-may-17-at-the-aldrich-contemporary-art-museum https://news.hamlethub.com/ridgefield/places/65409-genesis-belanger-opens-may-17-at-the-aldrich-contemporary-art-museum65409-genesis-belanger-opens-may-17-at-the-aldrich-contemporary-art-museum

Genesis Belanger’s conceptual methodology blends Surrealism and Pop art with self-possessed feminism informed by a professional career inside the fashion and advertising industries. Her studio practice is chiefly centered on the creation of porcelain and stoneware sculptures and tableaux. Staging her sculptural objects on upholstered furnishings of her own invention, Belanger constructs uncanny scenes that perform narratives about our anxiety afflicted present.

Her process begins with patterned forms pressed from rolled clay sheets, which she then models by hand and only fires once. She never uses glazes and chooses clays for their natural color, preferring a soft confectionary palette: creams, beiges, and pastels. Uniformly matte, the sculptures impersonate stone and cement and parade inherently relatable personalities. 

Anthropomorphizing common household objects, Belanger imparts beauty products, design accessories, and food items with feminized attributes: lipsticks with wagging tongues, lamps with ladies’ pearls, and tins with doey-eyed sardines. She fancies gendered motifs—well-manicured fingernails, lipstick smeared cigarettes, and candy-colored pills—that personify women’s troubles, desires, and addictions. Her dreamlike jumbles invoke Surrealists like René Magritte and Kay Sage as well as Pop artists like Marisol and Claes Oldenburg, but her inimitable creations are undoubtedly about our image-obsessed moment.

At The Aldrich, Belanger will create her largest and most elaborate mise-en-scène to date. Dozens of animated objects will be attentively arranged on ghostly furnishings: a standing piano, an extended dining table, a round coffee table, a sofa, and more. The furniture will be shrouded in monochromatic grey upholstered skirts while an immense pleated curtain will fill an entire gallery wall, casting the room in a palpable funereal atmosphere. 
Genesis Belanger (b. 1978) currently lives and works in Brooklyn, NY. She holds a BFA from The School of the Art Institute, Chicago, IL, and an MFA from Hunter College, New York, NY. Selected exhibitions include Coins for the Ferryman, François Ghebaly Gallery, Los Angeles (2019); Holding Pattern, New Museum, New York (2019); A Strange Relative, Genesis Belanger & Emily Mae Smith, Perrotin, New York (2018); and Cheap Cookie and a Tall Drink of Water, Mrs. Gallery, Maspeth, NY (2017). 
The exhibition will be accompanied by the artist’s first museum publication, a full-color 80 page catalogue, featuring an essay by the exhibition’s curator, Amy Smith-Stewart.  
Organized by Amy Smith-Stewart, Senior Curator, The Aldrich Contemporary Art Museum

Georgianne M. Kasuli 

Georgianne Marie Kasuli (née Curtis) born July 17, 1947 passed away early Friday morning, January 17th, from a Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease. She is survived by her loving husband of 51 years, Richard Alexander Kasuli, their daughter Erica, son-in-law Nicholas Skeadas and her grandchildren Genevieve and Julian. She is also survived by her brother Walter Curtis his wife Rosie and her two nephews Walter and Andrew. 
Georgianne was born in New York City and raised in the Inwood section of Manhattan where at the age of sixteen she met and later married Richard Kasuli. From the onset of their relationship they would sit on a park bench, share their dreams and plan their future.  Through hard work and mutual commitment those dreams came to life in a successful business and a wonderful extended and immediate family. And, in a small way, Georgianne’s love of family was exemplified by her years of genealogical research detailing her extended family’s history. We know more about who we are because of her committed efforts.
She had been an active member of the Ridgefield Historical Society prior to the   new millennium and served as treasurer and accountant for most of that time. She was a diligent worker and reliable collaborator; and together, with her colleagues, spearheaded the creation of a publication commemorating the upcoming 20th anniversary of RHS's incorporation. If so desired, donations may be made in her name for the implementation and realization of that vision by contacting: Ridgefield Historical Society - 4 Sunset Lane; Ridgefield CT 06877, (203) 438 5821
During WWII her father was part of a special force, the Ghost Army, that employed the use of sound effects, and the creation and the placement of inflatable tanks on the European battlefield to fool the opposing German Army. To keep the memory of these soldiers alive the Ghost Army Project has been created, and the Kasuli’s have made a generous donation in the name of George Curtis, Georgianne’s father. If you wish to contribute to this organization, in his honor, please do so by sending a check, or visit the website of theGhost Army Legacy Project -11305 Michigan Ave., #1104; Chicago, IL 60605, www.ghostarmylegacyproject.org
Georgianne was a kind, loving, and deeply caring person who looked out for others. Her guidance and wisdom will be missed by all who knew her. 
Friends will be received on Tuesday, January 21, 2020 from 2:00 to 4:00 PM and 7:00 to 9:00 PM at Kane Funeral Home; 25 Catoonah Street, Ridgefield. A Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated on Wednesday, January 22, 2020 at 10:00 AM at St. Mary's Church; 55 Catoonah Street, Ridgefield.

They wrote on their Facebook Page, "BEACH DAY! We couldn't think of a better way to spend a balmy 24° day. Today we trained on sets of skills we hope to never use, Ice Water Rescue."

Ridgefield Professional Firefighters urge all residents to stay off the ice. "During our drill, we did not cut any holes in the ice. We actually fell thru while walking. Although it is very cold out, the ice is not thick enough to sustain substantial weight," they say.
