CDR's 11th Annual Shoreline Walkathon!

Despite rain and wind, many friends and families participated in the Community Dining Room's (CDR's) 11th Annual Shoreline Walkathon on Saturday, April 26st on the Branford Town Green. With the support of many volunteers, sponsors and donors, this event included live music, crafts and raffle prizes.  We heartily thank Eunice Lasala, our Grand Marshal and Chris Velardi from News Channel 8 for encouraging our walkers.
