Susan Baer moved recently to Westport, as an empty nester. After reading a recent “06880” Unsung Hero story about a woman whose dinner was paid for by a stranger, she realized that as the holidays approach, other Westporters might be alone too.
That sparked an idea. Susan writes:
Why don’t we start a list of Westport residents who will be alone on holidays and don’t want to be — along with those who are willing to open their homes to one or two of the folks with nowhere else to go?
If it works, we could expand it to include birthdays of those who are alone.
Who knows who you might meet — and what great connections we could all make!
Great idea, Susan. And I know just the way to make it happen: “06880”!
Let’s start now. If you will be alone for the holidays — or want to host someone who is — please email firstname.lastname@example.org. Include the dates you’re available, and any other important information.
I’ll do my best to match Westporters together — no guarantees, but I’ll try!
All emails are confidential. Happy holidays!
