Sunday, September 20, visitors toured our re-visioned Shorefest “on a Roll” event. They took a family drive through Sherwood Island State Park with fun stops along the way.  At the last stop, they picked up their pre-ordered Lobster Roll dinner (courtesy of WestFair!).   CONGRATULATIONS to the Friends--Cece Saunders and Steve Axthelm--who envisioned and implemented this unique, wonderful event. Almost alone amongst lobster fest organizers, they figured out how to do it during Covid-19--and actually made it work! AND made it fun for all! Board President Liz-Ann Koos says, "GOOD JOB!" And we all say, THANK YOU! Also THANKS to: The Pantry of Fairfield (that delicious strawberry shortcake in your Lobster Pack). New England Brewing Co. (a bottle of their small-batch craft beer in each dinner) JenniBakes (a lobster-themed sugar coookie for each child in a car) And our representatives, past, present and future, who have adopted us!     The visitors just kept on comin' They got lots of guides:       FOOD: (Photo by Toni Boucher)   KITES!     A young lad's dreams soar on a kite into the wide open blue skies at Shorefest DISC GOLF!   History of the Park AND Purple Martin Education: The Country Squires and the AIRFIELD!
