[ARCHIVED] First Selectwoman's Community Update

First Selectwomans community update

COVID Update

Madison currently has 17 active COVID-19 cases in our community and, unfortunately, three residents hospitalized.  As we enter the winter months, we continue to encourage all vaccinated residents over the age of 18 to follow CDC guidance and get a COVID-19 booster shot in order to provide additional protection from spread of the virus.  Booster shots are widely available through online sign-up at pharmacies and health care providers throughout Connecticut. More information can be found through the state’s vaccine portal. We also continue to encourage anyone with children five years of age or older to get their children vaccinated against COVID-19, especially if you are making any travel plans for the winter break.  Pediatric vaccines for children age 5 to 11 are widely available through pediatric clinics and local pharmacies throughout the state. Vaccinating our young people against COVID is the best way to ensure our children stay in school.

Community Information

The Town will be holding two Public Information Sessions regarding the Academy Community Center Proposal, which is planned for a public vote on February 15, 2022.  The first Public Information Session will be next Thursday, December 9, 2021 at 3:00 p.m. at the Madison Senior Center. The second will be held on Wednesday, January 5, 2022 at 7:00 p.m. at the Madison Town Campus in the Hammonasset Room.  Both sessions will be available for either in-person attendance or remote attendance via zoom. More information and the links can be found at www.madisonct.org/AcademySchool.

Madison Beach and Recreation is happy to announce that open gym times are returning for Madison residents. Gym passes are required. Passes purchased prior to the Town Gym’s COVID closure are valid until April 1, 2022.

  • Youth Open Gym begins on Tuesday, December 7th from 3 to 4:45 pm and will run every Tuesday through Friday.  All youth ages 9 to 15 must purchase a new pass for $5 in order to participate. Youth must be present at the time of purchase for the pass.
  • Family Gym hours will be held on Saturday December 11th and 18th  from 11:30 to 1:00. Adults must have a pass in order to gain entry into Family Gym time. Family gym time must include an adult with children.   
  • Adult Open Gym (ages 16 and older) will be on Tuesday and Wednesday nights from 7 to 8:45 pm.   
  • At this time, the Fitness Center remains closed.

Community Events

The Madison Beach and Recreation Holiday Tree Lighting Ceremony will be held on Friday, December 10, starting at 6:00 pm by the Town green. Join us for the lighting of the tree, music by Larry Stevens, hot cocoa from Scout Troop 490 in Madison, and a visit from Santa and Rudolph.

The Madison Police Department’s Toy Fund and Food Drive to benefit local families and the Yale New Haven Hospital Children’s Toy Closet will be accepting donations now through December 31. Toys, board games, books, gift certificates, etc. for children through the age of 16 are needed. All new, unwrapped gifts or monetary donations and food items may be dropped off at the Police Department located at 9 Campus Drive 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

And finally, I’d like to wish a very Happy Hanukkah to those who celebrate the Festival of Lights! May you enjoy the last few days of this wintertime celebration. Have a great weekend Madison!
