Stay at Home BBQ a success

More than 80 people attended the Stay at Home in Wilton Annual Summer BBQ on July 18. Everyone enjoyed a beautiful summer evening under the Wilton Y Pavilion.

Board members, members, volunteers and guests gathered for appetizers, a cookout, and dessert from College Creamery Ice Cream Truck of Wilton. It was a great night and the ice cream truck added a touch of nostalgia and provided a delicious treat!

Stay at Home in Wilton is part of a nationwide Village to Village network. Many communities use the “village” concept to provide services and support to seniors living in the community.

Stay at Home is made up of an active vibrant group of seniors who participate in wonderful activities and seminars, and benefit from the services provided. For less than a dollar a day, members receive light household repair services, great gatherings, rides when needed and other benefits. More than 90% of people age 65 and older want to live in their home as long as possible. Stay at Home in Wilton offers many benefits and volunteer opportunities for active members and provides services to seniors who choose to age in place in the community they love.
