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!

- Don’t Miss Santa’s 2020 Silvermine Driving Tour!
One of the oldest traditions in Silvermine is back, but with a twist. Santa will once again drive around Silvermine on his antique fire truck this Christmas Eve between 2-3pm.
Unfortunately, Santa will not be able to hand out presents this year. That wouldn’t be safe. Instead, he will be riding around Silvermine and waving to neighborhood families as he passes by. This VIP will even have a police escort!
This event is open to all. The driving tour starts at 2pm and finishes at 3pm on Christmas eve. Find a street corner to wait for Santa on the map below – or drive by the Silvermine Arts Center between 3-3:15pm where you can wave to him from your car.
This Silvermine Community Association celebration is one of the most popular events in our community and a longstanding Silvermine tradition.
This holiday season, please consider supporting your community by joining the Silvermine Community Association today! Membership is $40 and covers your entire family.

- Decorating Silvermine For The Holidays!
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 holiday season 2020.Continue reading →
