City of New Britain to host “All-America City” Celebration
New Britain, Conn. August 3, 2016 – Mayor Erin E. Stewart and members of the community will host an event on Thursday, Aug. 25, 2016 at Trinity-on-Main to celebrate the city’s designation by the National Civic League as an “All-America City.”
On June 19th, the National Civic League named New Britain one of only 10 towns and cities from across the country a 2016 “All-America City” based on partnerships in the community that have led to reducing chronic absenteeism among students, a decline in youth obesity rates, and a drop in summer learning loss.
“This award is validation of what many of us have known all along: we have hard working individuals and organizations in our community who are innovative and successful in bettering New Britain,” said Mayor Stewart. “This event will be a chance to celebrate this honor and to highlight some of the inspiring work taking place in our city.”
Appetizers will be provided by Whitsons Culinary Group and beverages will be available for purchase at the venue.
The event will run from 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. Tickets are $20 and can be purchased by visiting: http://tinyurl.com/NBAACity . For questions, contact the Mayor’s Office at 860-826-3303.
