The season was in full swing Thursday at the Burr Homestead where the Fairfield Chamber of Commerce hosted its annual Spring Fling fundraiser and wine tasting.

With flowers popping up and trees blossoming around the historic mansion, the crowd networked while sampling wines and hors d'oeuvres, and bidding on silent auction items.

The evening's revenue helps provide new benefits and educational business programs to chamber members throughout the year.
