Upcoming and Recent Events

Bridgewater Town Cleanup

We will hold a much needed roadside cleanup on Saturday, April 22nd. Many thanks to HRRA for their partnership and JBM Carting for donating their time and equipment. Again this year, we will be “littering” prizes on roadsides to be redeemed by those who are lucky enough to find them. The success of this cleanup relies heavily on volunteers. Lend a hand if you can.

Give Local Campaign

Our annual Give Local campaign will be on April 25th and 26th. Thanks to the Connecticut Community Foundation for hosting this exciting 36-hour online give-a-thon. This is the best time to join the BWLT or renew your membership, as any support of $10 or more, is boosted by the Connecticut Community Foundation. In addition, we have an exciting opportunity thanks to the generosity of Bridgewater resident Chris Amorossi! The giving spirit of our community is impressive. Please consider a donation to all of the participating Bridgewater non-profits.  You can visit our Give Local page here:  https://www.givelocalccf.org/organizations/1960
