MANSFIELD- The Mansfield Downtown Partnership and Storrs Center master developer Leyland Alliance invite residents and visitors to “Winter Welcome,” a holiday event in Storrs Center on Saturday, Dec. 14 from 1 to 5 p.m. There will be carolers and musicians strolling and performing outside and indoors. The E. O. Smith Chamber Singers and performers from the Community School of the Arts will share their talents as part of the afternoon fun. And, participating Storrs Center businesses will have holiday treats, sales, and specials. Keep a look out for a Mountain Dairy milk truck heading from the Mansfield Town Hall around 2 p.m. – it will have a special passenger on board! Santa Claus will greet friends at the new UConn Co-op Bookstore in Storrs Center from 2 to 4 p.m. As part of Winter Welcome, Storrs Center businesses will be collecting donations to benefit the Town of Mansfield Human Services Holiday Program. This program supports local families in need during the holiday season and supplements efforts such as the Adopt-a-Family gift-giving program. Look for a collection jar at your favorite Storrs Center businesses. If you are interested in further participation, contact the Town’s Human Services department (860-429-3315) for more information about how to help Mansfield families in need.
