The Annual Family Funday Sunday “funraiser” for ITNNorthCentralConnecticut™ took place on Sunday, May 1st with member-riders, children, grandchildren, volunteers and supporters playing games at the Sports World Bubble in East Windsor.  “We have been proud members of the Board of Directors helping to bring alternative transportation to our seniors and visually impaired adults” said Enfield residents Amy-Beth Sirard (Senior Services Coordinator for the Town of Bloomfield) and Tom Sirard (member of the Board of Education in Enfield).

Magic beyond the ordinary was provided by magician Tom Obrien; face painting by Annabelle the clown; caricatures by Matt Ryan of Free Lunch Studios and a very special concert by the senior chorus from Enfield the Goldtones.  In addition, everyone had a chance in the 75 item tea cup raffle which included two foursomes to the Tradition Gold Club of Windsor, a birthday party and a three month membership at Healthtrex of Enfield.

ITNNorthCentralConnecticut™ offers rides 24/7 to seniors and adults with visual impairments in Bloomfield, East Granby, East Windsor, Enfield, Granby, Somers, South Windsor, Suffield, Windsor and Windsor Locks.   This alternative transportation program uses a combination of volunteer and paid driver who provide rides in private vehicles.  There is no restriction on the purpose of a ride, and help is offered to carry packages, fold walkers, and open doors.  Members enjoy peace of mind knowing that a clean private car and a safe, experienced driver are available to them around the clock, 365 days a year.

Volunteers are needed to keep the program affordable.  Car donations are also needed.  For information call 860-758-7833 or visit
