Family Pool Party – Bloomfield, Conn.

The NFXF Connecticut Chapter was excited to host a family pool party on August 13, 2023, at the JCC Swim and Tennis Club. Families came from Connecticut, Rhode Island, and Massachusetts. Ranging in age from 2 to 92, guests enjoyed perfect weather, fun pool activities (basketball, water slide, and diving board), good food, and great connections. Everyone enjoyed meeting other families for the first time and reconnecting with old friends.

Tammy and Andy Selinger shared how they helped to bring Fragile X awareness to club members who were also enjoying the pool by putting up a banner and placing Fragile X info sheets at the check-in for all entering the club to see.

Thank you to Tammy and Andy Selinger for organizing and hosting this local event to provide opportunities for the Fragile X community to connect!
