Westport is a community with spirit and compassion. Sunday marked the 33rd Annual Westport Young Woman's League Minute Man Race . The sun was shining, the runners were smiling and the crowd was singing! Congratulations to Lauren Lofrisco , chairwoman of the 2011 race. The generosity of all the sponsors was overwhelming. A big thank you to Gloria Tenofsky and her Teen Team of The Daily Westport, and Todd Wilkowski and his team from Performance Physical Therapy for their unwavering dedication to their community a community that doesnt sleep.
Welcome home and congratulations to Lynsey Addario , a New York Times journalist awarded a MacArthur Fellowship. The MacArthur award is a $500,000 genius award distributed over five years.
Is it possible that Michele Albano from Micheles Pies is in the news again? Michele was asked to do the goodie bags (with 800 mini-pies) for the Sports Emmy Awards in New York this week. Kudos to Michele!
As we praise our community, we also laughed at it during the performance of Forbidden Westport. Bravo to Kristen LaFleur, Meg Himes and Elizabeth Juviler , who portrayed what it is like to be a mother and Westport Young Woman's League member of the Westport community. Great job everyone!
