'MORE' members dance the night away

Members of the Trumbull MORE group danced the night away on Friday, April 24, during a special “Dancing with the Stars” event.

Trumbull MORE is a social group comprised of young adults and adults with disabilities from the surrounding towns of Trumbull, Monroe, Fairfield, Stratford, Shelton and Bridgeport. Members meet each Friday night for evenings that include movies, dancing and music, games, group exercise and more. The group is also associated with Masuk High School’s special education program.

According to organizers, the dancing event at Trumbull High was a huge success, with over 150 attendees. This was Trumbull MORE’s eighth annual dance for people with special needs.

According to volunteer, Lisa Bonnazzo the donations of many help make a successful night including the food, the props and volunteers.

“I was only helping at the event this year and was touched to see such happiness in the faces of everyone that attended, not just those with disabilities,” she said. “Diane Pappas, a Trumbull High graduate and and Kippy Johnson of Monroe make each year’s dance a success and it shows.”
