NORWALK, Conn. – This photo was taken Wednesday in East Norwalk, at Roger Ludlow Park. The Third Taxing District lights its tree a different color every month to honor different causes; the tree was gold in September to mark Childhood Cancer Awareness Month and now it’s pink to symbolize National Breast Cancer Awareness Month.
This practice started when the Exchange Club requested that the tree by lit blue to promote domestic violence awareness, TTD Commissioner Deb Goldstein said. “We decided it was such a great idea that we went ahead and created a program to make the tree a different color every month.” The Exchange Club always gets the same month.
