ENNA to honor founder

Laurel Lindstrom, founder and longtime president of the East Norwalk Neighborhood Association (ENNA) will be honored during the group’s monthly Zoom meeting on Monday April 19., according to a press release.

Before founding ENNA, two term Common Council member  Lindstrom had previously launched other civic groups in the area between L.I. Sound and Westport Avenue.  ENNA was incorporated in 2003.  It is a 501(c)(3)  non-profit whose stated mission  is  “to preserve and enhance the natural and historic assets and quality of life in East Norwalk”.

“We’re inviting past Board members, other Neighborhood Association’s leadership, elected city officials & employees who served or worked with Laurel, and all Norwalk residents to share their personal recollections of Laurel and ENNA,” current president Diane Cece said.  “We would also be interested in obtaining photos or news articles about ENNA and its predecessor organizations VSZHAN and ENA, especially any that feature Ms. Lindstrom.”

Meeting attendees are invited to pay tribute during the meeting, or submit short video tributes or written comments.  Email [email protected] to receive the meeting link.  The ENNA site is www.eastnorwalk.org .
