10th Annual Walk to End Homelessness, Apr. 23, N.London;

Community

Parking Lot on Eugene O'Neill Drive, Eugene O'Neill Drive, New London, CT , 06320

noon-3 p.m., Southeastern Connecticut’s 10th Annual Walk to End Homelessness starts from the municipal parking lot on Eugene O’Neill Drive in New London. Registration begins at noon and the walk kicks off at 1 p.m.

Ben and Nancy Parent of the Rivergods will perform before the walk begins.

The 1.6-mile route follows easy terrain in downtown New London and the nearby Hempstead Street neighborhood. It passes several of the city’s community, cultural and historic landmarks, including the Little Pink House and Manwaring Hill, where patriots tried unsuccessfully to defend New London from Benedict Arnold’s troops in 1781.

Walkers will hear the stories of people who have been homeless, stop by HHC’s Vet House, and meet interpreters at the Hempsted Houses who will be portraying activists from the city’s earlier days.

Performances include the Raging Grannies (at the Hempsted Houses); Connecticut College’s Vox Cameli a cappella group at the entrance to the All Souls parking lot on Jay Street, and spoken word poets Viri Villalva-Salas, Juan Garcia and Verdi Degbey of Connecticut College at the junction of Blinman and Bank streets.

Walkers will finish at the Parade Plaza with a drumming circle organized by Doc Frazier, free ice cream and the opportunity to express their thoughts about what they’ve seen and heard during the day. Profiles of HHC’s shelter guests, created by Connecticut College student Mei Reffsin, will also be displayed there.

HHC, founded in 2006, provides hospitality and a bridge to permanent housing for adults experiencing homelessness in New London County. It will serve about 600 individuals from across the region this year.

The walk is organized by HHC and Connecticut College; the lead sponsors are the Waterford Group Charitable Foundation and Yale New Haven Heath/Lawrence + Memorial Hospital. All proceeds benefit HHC.

More information, including registration, is at www.nlhhc.org/walk. Walkers who raise the most support will win prizes from local businesses.

Cohanzie Volunteer Fire Company #5 Plans Open House

Cohanzie Volunteer Fire Company #5 Plans Open House;

Community

Cohanzie Volunteer Fire Company #5, 53 Dayton Road, Waterford, CT , 06385

On Sunday, April 23, 2017, 60 volunteer fire departments throughout the state will celebrate the start of National Volunteer Week (April 23-29, 2017) by holding open houses. Cohanzie Volunteer Fire Company #5 will be participating in this special event by opening the doors to its fire house located at 54 Dayton Road in Waterford from 10:00 a.m.-2:00 p.m. Visitors to the fire house will be able to talk with volunteer firefighters about the work they do, explore fire apparatus and turnout gear, get a tour of the fire house, and fill out an application. Find the fire company on Facebook at Cohanzie Volunteer Fire Company #5.

More than 80 percent of all fire personnel in Connecticut are volunteers, and the majority of fire departments throughout the state are experiencing a volunteer shortage. Local fire departments need volunteers of all skill levels and abilities, people willing and able to respond to emergencies whenever called upon.

Volunteer Firefighter Day is part of Everyday Hero CT, a program dedicated to increasing the number of volunteer firefighters throughout the state. A partnership of the Connecticut Fire Chiefs Association (CFCA) and the International Association of Fire Chiefs (IAFC), the Everyday Hero CT campaign is a two-year Volunteer Workforce Solutions (VWS) initiative designed to address the shortage of volunteer firefighters in Connecticut. It is helping achieve a viable and sustainable volunteer firefighter workforce for fire departments throughout Connecticut. Everyday Hero CT is funded by a Staffing for Adequate Fire and Emergency Response (SAFER) grant awarded to the CFCA by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security’s Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) to develop a model to enhance the recruitment and retention of volunteer firefighters.
