Report-It Recap October 9, 2015

(WTNH) — It’s the second week of October and it certainly looks like it.

The scarecrows are out and so are the mums. The pumpkins are ready to be picked. The same can be said about the apples.

But the biggest sign of the season is the foliage. Debbie snapped some beautiful shots at Burr Pond State Park in Torrington.

Speaking of a great view, you sent in some pretty amazing pictures of the super blood moon eclipse. The color – the shape – the detail. All of it pretty impressive and we won’t see it again for another 18 years.

People came together to raise money for Alzheimer’s disease. Our very own Gil Simmons was the emcee. The folks at Snap Fitness in Niantic took part in a blood drive. St. Michaels church in New Haven did the blessing of the animals.

Finally, some recognition is in order. Erin from Oxford was jumping for joy. She just got her driver’s license.

William B Meyer in Stratford is a family-run trucking business. They marked 100 years in operation.

 And a big congratulation to the Molter family in Middletown. They welcomed their first child – a daughter — Adeline Grace.
