Bigs, Littles and Families party at the beach

Carnival games, team relay races, six-foot Subway sandwiches and backpacks filled with goodies were the cause of many smiles for the children (Littles), adult volunteers (Bigs) and their families who attended a Beach Party at Walnut Beach in Milford.

The warm weather on July 28 and the shade of the pavilion allowed for a fun afternoon as employees from Walmart of Milford helped the Littles win prizes at the games and served lunch to the families. The staff of Big Brothers Big Sisters of SWCT provided sun catchers to paint, homemade salads to eat and frozen t-shirts to melt for a prize.

“It’s an opportunity for us to get together and have some fun in a community that supports our efforts throughout the year,” said Ellen Tracy, Executive Director. 

Special thanks go local businesses who helped with the event: Franchise World Headquarters (Subway) for lunch; Walmart of Milford volunteers for helping with the games; Dial Soap for the backpacks; Nestle Water for our beverages; and Tina Marie Photography of Shelton.
