2001-2018: Unchanging Aim for a Better Community 

Nearing its fiftieth anniversary year, Bloomfield's All-American City Award of 1970 still acts as a touchstone for citizens.  Marilyn Johnston presents her research on the history, meaning, and relevance of this award. With a specific spotlight on education, she will look back, reviewing some of the challenges, triumphs, and current progress of the public schools in the period covering 2001 to 2018. Her Power Point talk will also highlight other indicators of civic health in Bloomfield, which show a town comprised of many engaged citizens still working together to create a better community for us all. 


Marilyn Johnston worked at Cigna and at Bloomfield Libraries. She is the author of two books of poetry. She founded the Wintonbury Poetry Series, and is currently Secretary of the Wintonbury Historical Society.   Please register for tonight's program, a joint presentation of the library and the Wintonbury Historical Society.
