Every year for decades a cheerful, volunteer crew of Silvermine Community Association neighbors have decorated the historic signs, bridges and other parts of Silvermine for the holidays.
The idea is to bring community spirit and a festive touch to everyone, whether you celebrate Christmas, Hanukkah, Kwanzaa, Diwali, Las Posadas, Chinese New Year, Festivus (for Seinfeld fans) or something else.
Beyond the holidays, the SCA undertakes various projects throughout the year to maintain the beauty and character of the area. An important part of that work includes the installation and maintenance of the historic signs around the community. Read more about that here.
Below are some photos of Silvermine this and past holiday seasons.
THIS THURSDAY, please consider supporting the SCA during this 24-hour giving marathon (and our region’s biggest philanthropic event.
For 55 years, the SCA has been awarding scholarships to deserving college-bound seniors living in the Silvermine sections of Norwalk, New Canaan and Wilton. More than 300 high-school seniors have been helped through this unique neighborhood program.
And Fairfield County Giving Day is a great way to make a gift. Even $10 can help qualify us for special awards and prizes, some of which are large enough to fund another scholar this year!
But remember, you can only give on Thursday. Don’t worry we’ll send a reminder that morning: )
