Scholars help out at Children’s Day School of Wilton Family Fun Day – 17 September 2016

A call for volunteers put out on the Wilton 411 Facebook community page led to all fourteen of the ABC Scholars helping out at the Children’s Day School of Wilton’s annual Family Fun Day last Saturday. What a great way to kick off the school year! Mary Alexis Murphy, Vice-chair on the CDSW Board said, “[The ABC Scholars] helped us sell pizza, sat at the craft, tattoo and face painting tables and watch the bounce house. They also helped with setup and clean up. The volunteers were great and a big help to make our event a success. Thank you!!”
