Jimmy, my trainer at the Edge Gym in Stratford, our new home town, has become one of Fairfield’s best ambassadors. Jimmy and his girlfriend Carly, a recent Fairfield University graduate, recently finished their initial renovations of a house they purchased in Fairfield.
As a former, 32-year resident of Fairfield, I was happy to hear that Jimmy and Carly were new residents of our town, and, of course, to immediately provide any long-term wisdom I can about Fairfield and various traditions. For example, I made a point of telling him about the annual picnic held at the Fairfield Museum and History Center after the parade. I’m not sure they got over there, but I know they were doing quite a bit of walking.
