A huge round of applause for the folks that designed this beautiful invitation to this event to benefit The Council of Churches of Greater Bridgeport. The mission of The CCGB is to turn faith into action to provide programs that help people at risk meet their urgent needs. The event on October 10th, 2015 will be held in the very cool building at 305 Knowlton StreetThe building was once home to Armstrong Manufacturing Company — a well-known tool and die manufacturer in the 1800s — and little-known creator of a technologically advanced prototype “horseless carriage” built in 1895. The building is located on the Pequonnock River estuary in the Washington Park Historic District on Bridgeport’s East Side. Once referred to as “Pembrooke City” — it is an area rich with some of the finest examples of nineteenth century residential architecture in the country — largely due to PT Barnum and William Noble, who invested heavily in its development. You just might want to check out this event, you’ll have a fun time and help out a lot of people.
