Images of the Back To School Event.

We had a beautiful, cloudless day for our First Annual Back to School Event on Lilac Street.  Here are some of the images captured that day.

Kali and I thank all of our supporters and volunteers who gave of their time, resources or both to make this event happen.  This event lifted a burden for many of our families and the kids had a great time!


We had generous volunteers from NHS of New Haven.

Local businesses that sponsored our event. Thank you Piggy Back Rides!

A mysterious photographer.  Is that Gary Holder-Winfield?

Loyal residents that love their neighborhood.

Great music.  Thank you DJ "Ultimate", DJ "E", and Tootskee.  You know how to move the crowd!

It's not a block party without dancing.  Lots of it.

Add water.

And a few reminders of why we did this. 

P.S.:  Head over to Gary Holder-Winfield's Facebook page.  He captured amazing images with all Newhallville had to offer this weekend.
