5th District Congresswoman Elizabeth Esty will be in Newtown this afternoon. She will deliver remarks at Catherine's Butterfly Party. The 6-year old, who had a passion for helping animals, was killed on 12-14.
State owned land has been donated to the Catherine Violet Hubbard Foundation to be converted into an animal sanctuary and wildlife preserve in Catherine's honor.
The butterfly party is from noon to 4pm at the Fairfield Hills Campus. An adoption event with the ASPCA and others will also be held. The Audubon Center at Bent of the River, Magic Wings Butterfly Conservancy, the Exceptional Pet, and UConn Department of Invasive Plants, among others will host educational exhibits and demonstrations.
Mobil Pie pizza truck, local vendors, face painting, tattoos, balloon twisters, and live music are also part of the day.
