Running legend, Rod Dixon, of New Zealand, will be in Waterbury this afternoon to kick off a fitness program he hopes to spread across the world. Dixon is an Olympic medalist, but is best known for his stunning come-from-behind victory in the 1983 New York City Marathon. Dixon will be at the North End Middle School at 4:30 to meet with kids and state and local officials. The public is invited.
Several Waterbury-based arts organizations have been awarded a state grant . Seven Angels Theatre, Shakesperience Productions, The Mattatuck Museum Arts and History Center and the Waterbury Symphony Orchestra will each receive grants from the Connecticut Arts Endowment.
