[ARCHIVED] Community Projects to Connect Residents

Woodbridge residents are encouraged to participate in two community projects to make people feel connected while being forced to be apart.

Beecher Road School Librarian Larissa Crocco and art teacher Ashley Wagner are asking students and residents to participate in a community building art project: create and display a heart in windows, mailboxes, doors and/or yards so that others could notice the hearts as they take walks or drive through town.

Hearts can be constructed from whatever materials people have at home.

“At a time when we are forced to keep our distance,  it is a way for us to come together as a town,” says Crocco.

Several residents, including Kay Robinson, suggested to First Selectman Beth Heller that the Town encourage everyone to ring a bell each night from 8 to 8:02 pm. This is “an old English tradition to show solidarity and support for each other,” writes Robinson. ”It is a way of connecting all of us in this time of isolation.”

“These residents and their suggestions demonstrate the true spirit of our town -- community, creativity and perseverance,” said Heller. “Please participate in both projects to show your neighbors that they are not alone.”
