5K and Kids' Track & Field Events
Thanks so much to everyone who came out to run, watch, and volunteer at the 2016 Run for the Playground and kids' events! The Willimantic Athletic Club did an awesome job, and we had 87 runners even though it was HOT! Congratulations to Steven Ignatowich and Bri Demers!
Many, many thanks to the UConn athletes and to Coach Misipeka for putting on the kids' events this year. We had a strong showing and are all ready for Rio 2016!

Mansfield's School Readiness Grant
The Town of Mansfield receives a grant from the State of Connecticut each year to provide high-quality, low-cost preschool to area 3 and 4 year olds. Four centers in town, Community Children's Center, Mansfield Discovery Depot, UConn Child Development Labs, and Willow House currently house school readiness spots. You can sign up for the wait list at any time, and you will be contacted when a slot opens and your child is age-eligible. Fees depend on family size and income. Contact Maggie Ferron at FerronMB@mansfieldct.org for more information or to get an application.

Safe Biking and Walking in Mansfield
Many parents and caregivers responded that this is an issue of importance to them. Please stay tuned for more information from the Town's public works department and MAC on how we can encourage more walking and biking in our town.
Do you have an idea? A stretch of road that could use some love? Where do you walk and bike with your family? Please let Maggie Ferron know at FerronMB@mansfieldct.org. We will compile the results and work on a finished report.
