Sunday & It is Good to be Home a Winner!
On Sunday morning a tired, but very happy band of delegates woke up early to catch their plane home. Of course, they made sure that the coveted All America City award was with them! A nearly three hour stop over in Washington gave some the opportunity to visit the Washington Monument while others stayed at the airport to eat.
Arrival in Hartford was chaotic and loud as chants of "We are the Valley" stopped many travelers in their tracks. Following a "media moment" with WVIT- TV, the delegates hopped on their bus for the final leg of the trip back to Nolan Field in Ansonia. A police escort into town was followed with a boisterous homecoming and more TV interviews with WTNH and WTIC.
It was an exhausting, but very rewarding experience for everyone involved.
