Six years ago today, something unspeakable took place very close to home here in Fairfield. In the neighboring town of Newtown, 26 precious lives were lost in a senseless tragedy. Fairfield's First Selectman Michael Tetreau is encouraging all residents to perform acts of kindness to remember and honor these souls today.
Fairfield's First Selectman Michael Tetreau announced recently that Operation Hope of Fairfield is one of five local non-profits to have received funding commitments from businesses totaling more than $40,000 as a result of the Town’s (no cost) participation in the State’s Neighborhood Assistance Act program.
