Greenwich started a new tradition last week, when the town observed Rare Disease Day for the first time during a moving event at Town Hall. Several speakers from various rare disease foundations spoke about their experience, and how their organizations have helped people.

For almost 40 years, Adopt-a-Dog has helped foster and adopt countless dogs, cats, and even small critters, putting them into loving and caring forever homes. The nonprofit organization recently enrolled in the First Bank of Greenwich Charitable Checking Program.
Earlier this week inside Town Hall, the community gathered to declare February as Teen Dating Violence Awareness and Prevention Month.
Throughout February, the YWCA of Greenwich, which is the only designated provider of domestic abuse services in the community, and YNet, a teen dating violence awareness club at Greenwich High School, will hold several events and programs to highlight the issue.
It was a joyous occasion last week inside the public safety complex on Bruce Place, as the Greenwich Fire Department celebrated the promotion of a decorated firefighter, and the swearing-in of a new recruit.
Mark Dawson, who has been with the department since 1999, was promoted to the Fire Marshal’s Division as a fire service inspector. Gary Benson, who comes to town after working as a volunteer firefighter in Stamford, was sworn-in by First Selectman Fred Camillo.
