Join us for our next Steering Committee meeting Thursday, October 11 at 9:15 am at the Comstock Community Center, Room 31. Beginning at 10 am, Beverly Brokaw will provide WLWV with a preview of the proposed Wilton Blue Zone Program.

For those unfamiliar with the concept of Blue Zones, here is a brief explanation from the Wilton Blue Zones website: “A Blue Zone Community leverages the common principles discovered in Dan Buettner's reporting on the Blue Zones around the world - rare longevity hotspots. These areas include the Italian island of Sardinia, Okinawa, Japan, Loma Linda, California, Costa Rica's isolated Nicoya Peninsula, and Ikaria, an isolated Greek island. . . Initiatives focus on improving life in the place where you spend 90% of your time. They measure progress in terms of the quality of life enjoyed by our employers, schools, restaurants, grocery stores, faith organizations, and even in our homes. As an added bonus, Blue Zone Communities find that they attract both new employers and new residents who want to live in a community actively taking steps to ensure their health and happiness.”
