The shooting in the quiet town of Newtown, Connecticut has been described as one of the worst school shootings in U.S. history. And unlike Columbine and the Aurora, Colorado movie shootings, this massacre occurred very close to home.
Safe Futures, formerly the Women’s Center of Southeastern Connecticut, has been providing free, confidential services to women, men and children since 1976.
There will be an open house for parents-to-be at the Backus Birthing Center October 29. In addition to presentations by an Obstetrician, Pediatrician, and other clinical staff, visitors will receive an overview of the classes offered at the hospital and can take a tour of the birthing center. The event is free but registration is required. View photos from past events sponsored by the Backus Birthing Center.

The horrific news of the Aurora, Colorado movie shooting is everywhere. It’s the worst shooting this country has seen since the Virginia Tech massacre in 2007, and has stirred up memories of Columbine, which occurred not far away.
As yet another heat wave bears down on the region, people who are lucky enough to have pools will be spending lots of time in them. This is a great way to cool down, but be sure to follow safety precautions.
