A community event is planned on Sunday at the Catherine Violet Hubbard Animal Sanctuary in Newtown. "Settling In" is aimed at getting the animals ready for winter. The sanctuary is named for one of the children killed at Sandy Hook School.
Catherine's mother, Jenny, says some of the entertainment for the day includes a nature walk, art lesson, live waterfowl exhibition and hayrides. Hubbard says participants can build bird feeders and brush caves for rabbits among other events.
The day's activities are free, but the Foundation is seeking donations of grass hay, bird feeders, bird food and salt licks for the sanctuary. Hubbard says they are on the way to building the first phase of the sanctuary. The Catherine Violet Hubbard Animal Sanctuary is located at the end of Old Farm Road. The property is 34 acres.
The event is from noon to 3pm.
