NEWTOWN  – In recognition of Flag Day, State Representative Mitch Bolinsky (R-Newtown) coordinated a worn American Flag drop-off event for flags that served their time but, because of wear or damage, deserve a respectful retirement.  The flags were collected at VFW Post 308 and will be disposed of in an appropriate military ceremony.  As a symbol of America, the freedoms we hold dear and those who have sacrificed to defend our nation’s freedoms, the VFW makes available this flag drop-off box, accessible all year at Post 308, 18 Tinkerfield Road in Newtown.

HARTFORD – St. Rose’s fourth-grade students from Ms. Davenport’s class visited the State Capitol on Wednesday, June 6, 2018, and were welcomed by State Representative Mitch Bolinsky (R-Newtown) in the House Chamber.

“The annual visit by St. Rose’s fourth-grade is one I look forward to all year,” beamed Bolinsky. “At this age, they’re already very civically aware, curious and full of great questions. With the help of wonderful teachers like Paula Davenport, we talked about how laws are made and the role of a State Representative as their voice, their parents’ voice and their community’s advocate in matters of the state. Their enthusiasm always makes this one of my favorite days of the year!”

The students also had the opportunity to meet Lt. Governor Nancy Wyman, a friend of Rep Bolinsky’s, and to view the Senate Chambers, learn the Capitol’s history, explore the Legislative Office Building, enjoy lunch on the Capitol lawn and visit the Soldiers and Sailors Memorial Arch in Bushnell Park.
