Fairfield’s New 375th Anniversary Website is Icing on the Town’s Anniversary Cake;  
Will Educate Visitors About Fairfield’s History and Planned Anniversary Events

FAIRFIELD, CT/FEBRUARY 18, 2014-- The Town of Fairfield’s exciting 375th Anniversary website has launched at 
http://www.fairfield375.com/,  adding the “icing” to the town’s anniversary cake. The site will educate residents and visitors about Fairfield’s history as well as direct them to planned anniversary events, according to committee co-chairs, Betsy Browne, Fairfield Town Clerk, and Robert Hojnacki, First Vice President of Bankwell.

       First Selectman Michael Tetreau said, “I encourage the Fairfield community to explore this informative website to learn more about all of the wonderful events planned for our Town’s anniversary celebration this year. I want to thank all of the people who worked on the site, as well as our anniversary committee members and all of the organizations and event partners who are helping to make this an unforgettable year!”

      “This site will be another venue that we can utilize to get the word out to our residents about the exciting year we have planned to commemorate Fairfield’s 375th anniversary," said Browne and Hojnacki.  "It’s informative, interactive, easy-to-follow and welcoming. Our website committee did a great job and we're especially grateful to Syed Agha, Amy Mezoff, Laura Roberts and Eric Sundman for their assistance."  The history section highlights excerpts from the Fairfield 350th Commemorative Booklet and will be updated throughout the course of the year.  The final page of the site is a thank you to all the community organizations, partners and committee chairs for their efforts and contributions in planning a remarkable 375th anniversary year.
       In addition to an impressive history page, the new website offers an array of memorable seasonal images and a special page for users to share their own Fairfield story, anecdote or photograph.  The calendar section is arranged for easy navigation, with month-by-month calendars highlighting events and their details when  you click on the particular item of interest.  Browne and Hojnacki encouraged site visitors to mark their calendars to participate in two very special events – the “Drive 375” town-wide food drive on the weekend of April 26 & 27 and the Town Anniversary Gala on November 15.

      The "Drive 375" town-wide community service project, to be held at the Ludlowe campus,  will benefit Operation Hope, Project from the Heart, Merton House and Bridgeport Rescue Mission. The November Gala will be held at Sacred Heart University where the William Pitt Center will be transformed to celebrate 375 years of what makes Fairfield special.

      "Our 375th anniversary website truly has something for everyone," Browne and Hojnacki added.  "We encourage our town residents to interact with our anecdote section to tell their stories and upload images and we are looking forward to getting their feedback also."
