The Norfolk Fire Department has fought its way through social media bureaucracy after its Facebook page was taken down for about two months. Facebook said the department violated a policy unknown to the firefighters but would not say which one. The normal appeals process did not work and Sen. Kevin Witkos’ office had to intervene twice before the page was restored. The fire company expressed its thanks to Witkos and his staff.
A Good News Gathering at Botelle School originally set for March 15th has been postponed until warmer weather to allow longtime Norfolk teacher, Fran Fratini Cooper, to more easily mix with former and current students. Mrs. Cooper, now in her 90s, will tell students what school was like when she taught at Norfolk Center School when the event is finally held. Former students and community members are invited to this event.
