Promoting Innovation, Creativity and Excellence in the Fairfield Public Schools

Shop & Stroll into Spring!

BettyWisse_comtheater

April 28th was the perfect night to grab some friends and head downtown and shop, shop, shop.

The event was “Shop & Stroll into Spring” in downtown Fairfield, and part of the proceeds from that day’s sales at various merchants went to the Fairfield Foundation for Education. (In previous years, FFFE held Sip Shop & Nosh, but this year we partnered with the Town of Fairfield and the Fairfield Chamber of Commerce.)

Participating stores in downtown Fairfield were open late, and shoppers were treated to wine and munchies provided by FFFE.

We are particularly thankful to People’s United Bank, our sponsor for the evening, and to all the stores that participated.

Red, White & Brew!

Thank you to everyone who attended our 5th annual  wine and beer tasting Saturday, Oct. 17, at the Fairfield Museum and History Center

The night featured a wine and beer tasting organized by Twisted Vine, a tasting of olive oils and vinegars by Dash ‘n’ Drizzle, a  silent auction and cheese and goodies to nibble between sips.

All proceeds fund grants for programs that enrich the curriculum and stimulate learning in the Fairfield Public Schools.

A big thank you to this year’s sponsors:

People’s United Bank and Fairfield Magazine.

People really do sip olive oil and vinegar. Thank you Dash 'N Drizzle.

The always-popular silent auction table, with jewelry, themed baskets and crates of wine is always popular.
