On behalf of the Branford Rotary Club and the Smilow Cancer Hospital at Yale New Haven, thank you to all who attended the Party at the Pond at Van Wilgen's on Saturday, Sept. 22! It was a fantastic evening, and your support and enthusiasm made for a very special night. We will have many pictures of the event available soon.

A special note  of appreciation to the Van Wilgen family for their unwavering support of Smilow and Rotary, and for working so hard to make the Party at the Pond a great success.
