The hitch team and red wagon appeared at the “Welcome Home Our Heroes” event, hosted by Dichello Distributor, honoring 20 veterans and their families for their dedicated service to our country on Thursday, May 1.
On the remaining two days Dichello customers from area package stores and businesses with bars were invited to the distributorship on Marsh Hill Road and treated to free food and a meeting with the Clydesdales and their handlers.
The opportunity to be close to these gentle, majestic animals delighted all the visitors.
First Selectman Jim Zeoli was an invited guest on May 1. (He gave my granddaughter a lift so she could see the horses close up, as the handlers did not want her to approach the giants on her own for safety reasons.)
