Website details 375 years of Fairfield


The Town of Fairfield’s 375th Anniversary website has launched at, adding the “icing” to the town’s anniversary cake.

The site will educate residents and visitors about Fairfield’s history as well as direct them to planned anniversary events, according to the committee co-chairmen, Town Clerk Betsy Browne and Robert Hojnacki, first vice president of Bankwell.

“I encourage the Fairfield community to explore this informative website to learn more about all of the wonderful events planned for our town’s anniversary celebration this year,” First Selectman Michael Tetreau said. “I want to thank all of the people who worked on the site, as well as our anniversary committee members and all of the organizations and event partners who are helping to make this an unforgettable year!”

Browne and Hojnacki said site will be another avenue to get word out to residents about the events all year to commemorate Fairfield’s 375th anniversary.

They thanked the website committee, Syed Agha, Amy Mezoff, Laura Roberts, and Eric Sundman.

The history section highlights excerpts from the Fairfield 350th Commemorative Booklet and will be updated throughout the course of the year.

The final page of the site is a thank-you to all the community organizations, partners and committee chairmen for their efforts and contributions in planning a remarkable 375th anniversary year.

In addition to the history page, the new website offers an array of seasonal images and a special page for users to share their own Fairfield story, anecdote or photograph. The calendar section is arranged for easy navigation, with month-by-month calendars highlighting events and details when clicking on the particular item of interest.

Browne and Hojnacki encouraged site visitors to mark their calendars to participate in two special events: the “Drive 375” townwide food drive on the weekend of April 26-27 and the Town Anniversary Gala on Nov. 15.

The Drive 375 townwide community service project, to be held at the Ludlowe campus, will benefit Operation Hope, Project from the Heart, Merton House, and Bridgeport Rescue Mission.

The November Gala will be held at Sacred Heart University, where the William Pitt Center will be transformed to celebrate 375 years of what makes Fairfield special.
