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. Hear what Mayor Scott Slifka has to say »
Next month: TBD
