To the Editor:

On behalf of the Darien Department of Human Services, I want to thank you and the Hindley Happening Chairpersons and Committee for your generous support.  The Hindley Happening Committee provided gift packets to families in town and gave local children the opportunity to enjoy rides, carnival games and more at the Hindley Happening last week-end.  (Even better, the rain held off!) The joy you brought to these children (and their parents) was priceless!

Thanks, again, for helping us help others.  With your generous support, we were able to bring smiles to the faces of some local children and their families.

Wishing you a good ending to the school year and a happy summer,

Ali Ramsteck, LCSW

Town of Darien

Director of Human Services
