  Frisbie Circle, Wolcott CT, An Entire Street that Pays it Forward 2014 While some people grab a few extra canned goods at the store and deliver them to the local church kitchen or pantry, the residents of Frisbie Circle in Wolcott CT take it a giant step beyond. The street goes all out to decorate their homes, but not for a bit of neighborly competition. They have gathered their collective displays and offer a lighting spectacle where all can come and appreciate, and the cost of admission is a request to donate a non-perishable food item into the many collection boxes along the street. Each spends hours of their time to put up Christmas decorations and Lights to be appreciated by all that drive through the street. They look for nothing for themselves, but in front of each house is a c...

A BBQ Challenge that gets no Publicity but draws Hundreds to taste the food Peterson Field in Wolcott CT had an aroma coming out that drew the attention of a lot of neighbors. By 7 AM, the activity field had at least a half dozen tents erected and the cookers and smokers were being fired up for the day's cooking. It's an event that started with a friendly neighborhood challenge as to who was the best at ribs. A date was set for mid September for the cook off and friends were invited to be the judges. That was 8 years ago and it was determined a draw. As friends gathered to taste that first day's offerings, requests were made to attend the challenge the following year and compete as well. That snowball started to roll and this year there were 17 teams in competition with hundreds of spec...
