The Exchange Club of Shelton purchased 100 teddy bears and donated them to the Shelton Fire Department so that firemen can give them to children who may have been traumatized by a frightening situation such as a fire, motor vehicle accident or medical emergency. The bears will be carried on the departments' fire apparatus and emergency response vehicles. In this photo, former fire commissioner Mark Connolly accepts the bears from Shelton Exchange Club member Carol Navarro.
The Exchange Club of Shelton inducted it's newest member on November 5 with CT District President Roger Picard on hand to perform the ceremony.
