United Way of Addison County honors founders at its 50th anniversary

ADDISON COUNTY — The United Way of Addison County celebrated its 50th anniversary a few weeks back with a themed 1960s party in honor of two of the founders of the organization: Ann Ross and Ann Brousseau. It was in 1968, that the two women started a Cornwall event that would later become Addison County’s United Way.
UNITED WAY STAFF members Nancy Luke, Lee Bilson and Suzanne Waldren celebrate. 
About 75 people attended the event at Tourterelle in New Haven, which featured dinner, special recognition to Ross and Brousseau and dancing to music of the sixties.
Next up for the UWAC is the Days of Caring on Sept. 27-29, along with the campaign kick-off event. One event before then is the Stuff the Bus event at Danforth Pewter’s on August  4-5. UWAC staff will be there both days to collect donations of school supplies to help alleviate the strain that many Addison County families feel when it’s time to begin back to school shopping.
ABOUT 75 PEOPLE attended the event at Tourterelle in New Haven.
