The Initiative

Hello! West HartfordTM, a project of West Hartford's new Community Connections group, is a town-wide initiative to build bridges between community members.  Put simply, it is saying "Hello" and "Welcome" to each other in one of the many languages spoken by West Hartford residents.  There will be a different host and language chosen for each month.  Please click on one of the links under "How to Participate" for more information. Among the initiative's many supporters are: Mayor Scott Slifka, Town Manager Ron Van Winkle, School Superintendent Karen List, School Board Member Terry Schmitt, and Celebrate West Hartford Coordinator Helen Rubino-Turco.

    I think learning languages is just something that many of us have an interest in following. That’s why you get people learning Korean by watching jdramas. Thus there’s time spent on study methods. These are good times.

    I am so excited for the celebration on April 29. It will be so fun. I attend IEA in west Hartford. My music teacher speaks Korean. Our janitor speaks Spanish and we have a student who knows ASL. Our school is very diverse as is West Hartford. I am happy to be going to School in West Hartford. It is so culturally diverse and Hello! West Hartford helps bring out the beautiful patchwork of culture. I am a big supporter of Hello! West Hartford.
