Ridgefield community treasure Barbara Manners will be featured honoree for her many civic contributions at the 2018 Ridgefield Old Timers Dinner on Saturday, October 13. Barbara’s record of service to Ridgefield and surrounding communities includes spearheading The Ridgefield Playhouse, Concert Happenings in Ridgefield Parks (CHIRP), Acoustic Celebration, Ridgefield Bark Park Lighting Fund, Ridgefield Holiday Trust Fund, among many other efforts. All these and her other civic activities are in addition to Barbara’s tireless and wise service as a member of the Ridgefield Board of Selectmen, to which Ridgefield voters have repeatedly and gratefully elected her. In all, Barbara has served as a town official for 21 years, having been elected 7 times.
