Shelton family awarded in Fresh Air Fund annual photo contest

Shelton residents, the Gasparino family, celebrated the pure joys of summer with The Fresh Air Fund and were among the winners of The Fresh Air Fund’s 2015 Photo Contest! All winners were selected from the hundreds of pictures sent in by volunteer host families across the Northeast, reflecting the memorable experiences they shared with their New York City visitors this past summer. Categories include “Laketime Fun”, “Summer Siblings”, “By the Beach”, and “Fresh Air Foodies”.

The Gasparinos’ photo was determined the winner in the “Animals” category, and features Fresh Air visitor, six year-old Isaiah enjoying the petting zoo in Connecticut.

The Fresh Air Fund, an independent, not-for-profit agency, has provided free summer experiences to more than 1.8 million New York City children from low-income communities since 1877.
