The past, the present, and the future
Georgetown Village Restoration, Inc. (“GVRI”) was founded in 1999 as a collaborative effort in the restoration, revitalization, and maintenance of the village of Georgetown, Connecticut. Georgetown was formed in the early 1800s for the Gilbert & Bennett Wire Mill. It comprises the corners of four town — Redding, Weston, Wilton, and Ridgefield — and a charming Main Street with restaurants, cafes, and other businesses, and a surrounding residential neighborhood.
GVRI proud to share that we contributed $4000 in April 2020 in support of those in need due to COVID-19 in the surrounding four-corner towns. Redding Social Services received $1200, and we purchased ten $40 gift cards from the seven Georgetown food-service businesses. These gift cards were distributed to Social Services in Redding, Weston, Wilton, and Ridgefield for distribution to individuals and families in need.
GVRI is currently reshaping its mission and aim to better serve all of our community. We invite you to become a part of the community! Here’s how you can get involved:
- Become a member by completing our online form. Everyone is welcome to join and contribute ideas and efforts.
- Attend a GVRI member meeting (even if you’re not yet a member). We typically meet the first Monday of each month barring a holiday. Our next meeting is via videochat on Monday, February 1st, at 6 p.m. Email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
- We’re crossing our fingers that we will be able to host some iteration of Georgetown Day in 2021, depending on Covid restrictions and safety concerns. Keep an eye out for more information or email us to become a sponsor or vendor.
