Our Latest Social Endeavor

In honor of World Ocean Day FCC staff in Wilton, CT teamed up with NAMEPA for a hands-on event to collect debris in the local waterways.  The crew, pictured above, picked up almost 100 pounds of trash from the Norwalk River and surrounding area.  We thank NAMEPA for hosting this event and all participating staff who navigated the mud and grime to make the world a little better.
