Kudos to all the groups, businesses and individuals who make this event come together. It should be a "must" for Tolland residents, just to see the number of groups and efforts dedicated to enhancing family and community life here. If you didn't make it this year, mark your calendar for next year... even a half hour will be well worth your time, and helps let these community groups know they're appreciated.
