  • The New London Airport will have its 41st annual Down-Home Fly In this Sunday.

        It’s a special day because it falls on the birthday of the airport’s founder. Rucker Tibbs turns 87 that day — at least, Tibbs says he will turn 87 that day if his wife doesn’t kill him first.

  • Boy Scout Troop 183 is celebrating its anniversary this weekend.

        The troop started in 1957 and was originally sponsored by St. John’s Episcopal Church. Harold Wilkes was the first scout master and the Rev. G. William Beale was rector of St. John’s at the time. The troop became associated with Bedford Presbyterian Church in the 1980s and both churches jointly sponsor it. They meet in a facility owned by Bedford Presbyterian on Center Street. It is the oldest continuing troop in the Bedford area.

  • Gross’ Orchard now features an artists’ village.

        It’s just down the road from the orchard’s sales area and signs point you to it.

It consists of some small buildings providing sheltered spaces for local artists to display and sell their work. There is also space where tents can be set up.
        It’s called “Artists’ Village by the Stream.”
