Kindness in Real Life: Niantic church shows ‘sweet appreciation’ for essential workers

Members of the Niantic Community Church’s Parish Life Ministry gave their thanks to first responders and essential workers in the community through the delivery of homemade baked goods over the last month.

Carolyn Lombardo, Laurie Palmer, Joanne Moore, Karen Peacock, Edie Watrous, Jeannette Woodworth, Julie Leis and Sonya Hoisington created platters with homemade fruit breads, cookies and biscotti along with a card to police, firefighters, emergency medical personnel, postal workers and town maintenance staff in East Lyme.

“Recipients were thrilled and so surprised,” Joanne Moore, co-chair of the ministry, said in a release. “It was great fun making the deliveries. ‘Community’ is our middle name at NCC, and we salute those who make our community a great place to live.”
