In keeping with the Chamber’s mission of “Connecting The Community With Commerce” this Calendar was created to allow member businesses and New Canaan based non-profits to promote their upcoming events to the public. The Community Calendar is a local resource for all residents and visitors and has quickly become one of the most visited pages on the site. Events can be submitted via the link below and will be reviewed and posted within 24-48 hours.

The Town of New Canaan, NewCanaanite.com and Zumbach’s Gourmet Coffee are co-sponsoring a forum on public buildings, to be held 6:30 to 9 p.m. on Wednesday, Jan. 9.
A follow-up to a widely attended forum held in April, “The Future of Town-Owned Buildings: Part II” will start with a 30-minute coffee outside the Town Meeting Room at Town Hall. Running 7 to 9 p.m., the forum is a chance for residents to address, put questions to and hear from decision-makers in local government and community experts on what’s happening with several public buildings whose future use, ownership and in some cases, existence, are now in play.
Those buildings include:
New Canaan Police Station
Irwin House-Barn-Gores Pavilion
Former Outback Teen Center
Amy Murphy Carroll, member, Board of Finance; co-chair, Town Building Evaluation & Use Committee
Penny Young, member, Town Council; co-chair, Town Building Evaluation & Use Committee
Kit Devereaux, selectman
Arnold Karp, president and founder, Karp Associates
Martin Skrelunas, member, Historic District Commission and Historical Review Committee
James Basch, taxpayer
The panel will be co-moderated by John Engel, chairman of the Town Council; Tucker Murphy, executive director of the New Canaan Chamber of Commerce; and Michael Dinan, editor/publisher of the New Canaanite.
To prepare our readers ahead of the forum and make best use of the time, info-sheets on the buildings listed above, and others, will be published on NewCanaanite.com starting Jan. 2.
Questions for panelists may be submitted in advance using this form:
