The beautiful weather and blue skies of summer in Greenwich are in full swing - and the number of local happenings listed on the Living Greenwich Event Calendar are plentiful enough to make certain you’ll never be at a loss for something fun to do!
Many of you are probably already familiar with Turq and their ultimate (non-chafing, quick-drying, anti-microbial and chlorine-safe) swim briefs - but we figured you’d enjoy learning a little more about the owner and backstory of this growing Greenwich-based company!
From Manhattan to the Hamptons, the name ‘Citarella’ has become synonymous with ‘gourmet food’ - now they’ve opened their seventh store (the first outside of New York) on the west side of Greenwich and culinary-inclined local residents have already fallen in love with the food shopping experience and level of quality they’re providing.
In 2011, the Old Greenwich Farmer’s Market was founded by several local residents. Dana Evans, Amy and Kevin Burke, Lesley and Bill King, and Jeff Bischoff had all been friends for many years when they mutually developed the idea to start a local market based on a variety of complementary motivations.
Greenwich is a coastal community - and there’s something about the summer sun glistening on the water that instantly puts smiles on faces. Water is calming. Water is healing. Water can even play a role in helping those we love to fight and survive the effects of devastating disease….
That’s why, on the morning of June 27th, volunteer participants in the 9th Annual Swim Across America Greenwich-Stamford 2015 Swim will be entering the water of Long Island Sound to help raise money to fund cancer gene therapy research.
Warm sunshine and festive energy in the air set the stage for the 2015 Old Greenwich Memorial Day parade.
This patriotic - and highly attended - event is organized annually by the Sound Beach Volunteer Fire Department - and they do it big! This year, participants marching in the parade numbered in the hundreds and represented a diverse cross-section of our local community including first responders, sports teams, volunteer firefighters, policemen, scouts, veterans groups, nonprofits, schools, local businesses and community organizations of all stripes
Now that the weather is warming up, everyone’s looking for an excuse to get out of the house, break away from work and take advantage of the fresh air. Fortunate for us in Greenwich, some of those who came before us made the effort to put aside and protect some choice parcels of land that are perfect to visit and unwind at during these glorious almost-summer days.
A Living Greenwich interview with Susan Watson Scully of Watson’s Catering & Events:
I grew up in Rye, the eldest of five. Once I got my first EZ bake oven I was off and running. Both my mother and my grandmother liked to entertain. They would shine the silver, write the place cards and get everything organized early in the week for a party.
Fast & Easy. Don't worry. We'll never post anything without your permission.
