Kicking of 100th year anniversay celebration
The gathering was a partnership with Midstate Chamber of Commerce.
“We thought it would be great to kick off our (anniversary) with businesses,” said Michelle Bourdeau, executive director of Girls Inc.. “This is for people to network with the business community, but also to thank them. A lot of our support comes from local businesses.”
Girls Inc., 130 Lincoln St., serves about 1,500 girls age 5 and up from Meriden and Wallingford. It continues its traditional programming of dance and gymnastics as well as offering newer programs in science, math and technology, economic literacy, and social media literacy.
