West Hartford Will 'Tune-In to Life' Next Week

West Hartford Patch (West Hartford, CT) March 29, 2011 "Next week there will be something happening 'About Town' designed to have a positive impact on nearly every West Hartford resident – from pre-schoolers through seniors. For the 24th year in a row, The Bridge Family Center is holding 'Tune-In to Life' week. It’s officially called “a week of programs to promote healthy drug-free activities,” but the activities are also designed to promote overall health as well as to encourage intergenerational communication throughout the community. 'The program started 24 years ago by the Substance Abuse Commission working to combat underage drinking,' said Judy Bierly, Director of Community Services at The Bridge Family Center, who has been directing the program since 1993. She said that programming has been greatly expanded over time. 'We’ve always tried to get kids involved, but now we include the seniors, too, with the ‘Trip Down Memory Lane’ musical event featuring the Hall High Jazz Band.' That event will take place on Tuesday, April 5, from 3 p.m.-4:30 p.m., in the St. James’s Episcopal Church auditorium." Read More
