Block party to mark end of summer vacation


NAUGATUCK — Local churches are getting ready for a block party.

The annual Back to School Block Party, which is sponsored by Naugatuck Valley Community Church, Naugatuck United Methodist Church, Calvary Chapel Naugatuck, Stokes Counseling Service and Naugatuck Youth Services, is Sunday from 3 to 6 p.m. on the Town Green.

“It’s a fun community event that’s free for all ages,” Naugatuck Valley Community Church Reverend Tim Leggett said.

The party, which is a celebration to mark the end of summer vacation before school starts on Monday, will feature face painting, an inflatable obstacle course, a prayer tent, live music, and free food.

Those who come are asked to bring canned goods to donate to the Naugatuck Ecumenical Food Bank.
