DERBY - In honor of Earth Day, families from Irving, Bradley and St. Mary-St. Michael Schools in Derby joined together to create a butterfly garden in front of Irving School.
Families unite by ways of a FASTWORKS group organized by Valley Kids Belong (a project of the Parent Child Resource Center) in Derby. 

FASTWORKS focuses on maintaining positive relationships between families and the community. During this year FASTWORKS has held events such as a cleanup at Osbornedale State Park, bowling, picnics, pumpkin picking and are currently planning their next event geared toward cleaning the community. 
Families from these three schools are happy to come together to continue to give back to their community.
For information about Valley Kids Belong call Lauren Jassil, Program Coordinator, 203-893-0402.
