  3. The Welcome Club of Fairfield and Easton Annual Fall Family Kick Off Party. Saturday, September 24th at Lt. Owen Fish Park, 1401 Stratfield Rd. Fairfield, CT 06825

    The days of the Welcome Wagon may be over, but if you’re new in town there’s a place to get the lay of the land in Fairfield — the Welcome Club of Fairfield and Easton.

    Get your kids, the dog and your picnic basket ready. Celebrate the start of a new school year Saturday, September 24th at the Welcome Club of Fairfield and Easton Annual Fall Family Kick-Off Party. This year’s party is at Lt. Owen Fish Park starting at 11 AM until 2 PM. There will be plenty of complimentary hot dogs and condiments for all and an ice cream truck with all your favorite treats, so don’t forget your wallet! The fall kick off party marks the beginning of the club season, which runs September through June with some events and groups meeting over the summer. This free event is open to the public and will also have face painting, games and interactive music performances.

    Primarily a social organization, the Welcome Club helps new residents by helping them become acclimated quickly. As soon as a new member joins, they receive a welcome phone call and a newsletter, and their membership status is shared with existing Club members.

    Monthly events range from “Neighborhood Coffee” to “Men’s Poker Night” and provide opportunities to meet other members. The Welcome Club also has many active book groups and playgroups as well as monthly children’s and family events. Many activities introduce members to businesses and resources in the area (children’s facilities, restaurants, nature centers, etc.). In addition to social activities, the Welcome Club organizes fundraisers, community service projects and provides a monthly meal to the Operation Hope Shelter.

  4. The 17th annual Rob Mathes Christmas Concert is Saturday, December 18, 8pm, at the Palace Theatre in Stamford! This is a fabulous holiday concert and a family tradition for many. The concert is expected to be fully sold out, so get your tickets soon:

    Mathes, often lovingly referred to as “Mr. Christmas” by fans and fellow musicians for his nearly two-decades of performances of one of our region’s “can’t miss” holiday traditions, will once again be joined by his all-star band, featuring bassist Will Lee of David Letterman’s famed “CBS Orchestra” and longtime Mathes’ guitarist Billy Masters; the 30+ member Choir of Saints and Friends; award-winning vocalists including James “D-Train” Williams, and others. The set list will be full of what fans have come to expect from Mathes – a seasonal mix of original holiday compositions alongside imaginative and entertaining re-workings of holiday classics – all spanning the worlds of R&B, pop, jazz, classical and then some.
