It was a most welcoming event.
The Fairfield/Easton Welcome Club took over a corner of Owen Fish Park in North Stratfield on Saturday to make some new families feel right at home in their new homwtown.
"This is our get-back-into-the-swing of things get-together," said LaPlante. "It's a chance for people to meet new people."
Besides grilled food, there was lots for attendees to do to keep themselves amused and bond: a children's entertainer making balloon animals, wiffle ball, coloring and crafts -- topped off by an ice cream truck visit.
Fun, food, fall and new friends -- a fine welcome to town.
