Holiday House Tour

The New Canaan Holiday House Tour is a biennial charity event organized by the New Canaan Newcomers Club. Held in December, the event showcases New Canaan homes in varied architectural styles decorated for the holidays. Each home is paired with a professional designer who works with a team of Newcomer Volunteers to bring the vision to life. While the Tour is a fun, festive way to kick off the holiday season, it is also an important fundraising event that highlights the true spirit of the season. All proceeds raised by the event benefit local charities and organizations that are the essence of the New Canaan community.

Did You Hear … ?

“It’s the Rams. We’re coming.” New Canaan High School defeated rival Darien in the Turkey Bowl Thursday, 17-14. The game featured two early interceptions by NCHS senior Charlie Cunney, rushing TD by sophomore Christian Sweeney, field goal by sophomore kicker Nicholas Radman and Drew Pyne-to-Wyatt Wilson TD pass and terrific defensive stand by the Rams to effectively close out the game, spoiling Darien’s perfect season. The result means that New Canaan First Selectman Kevin Moynihan collects on his $100 charity bet with his Darien counterpart, Jayme Stevenson. He will donate the winnings to the New Canaan Athletic Foundation (a timely gift).
