On Friday, July 5th Norwalk Fire Fighters filled the boot out front of Fareway. With the help and generosity of the Norwalk community Norwalk Fire was able to raise $1,448 for MDA making it another great year. "The fire fighters of Norwalk have once again gone above and beyond for MDA's families during this year's Fill the Boot campaign," said Executive Director, Jillian Harper. "We are so grateful for their dedication and for the generosity of those in the Norwalk community and the surrounding area who have helped to raise critical funds to help transform the lives of kids and adults with muscular dystrophy, ALS and related muscle-debilitating diseases." Funds raised through Norwalk Fill the Boot events help MDA save lives by providing vital resources. For more information, visit mda.org. On July 8th, the Norwalk Parks and Recreation staff hosted a dedication cer- emony for Norwalk's newest recreation spot, Warrior Park, which is located at 511 Orchard Hills Drive. Please make time to visit this great asset to the commu- nity if you have not already experienced it. Congratulations to Parks and Recre- ation on a job well done. Photos by Jason Williamson I
