February 3rd marks the first Friday of a new month and the Lefty Cycles team is excited to spend the night out in Downtown Norwich, CT. In collaboration with Reliance Health, Inc., our Founder, Dylan Howley will be hosting an "Open Community Support Group" in connection with the First Friday Downtown Norwich event.
According to the event's Facebook page (click here), First Friday is a monthly Block Party in Downtown, Norwich, CT. Approximately fifteen local businesses will be participating as set locations on the interactive map and Reliance Health, Inc. is hosting Lefty Cycles at their downtown location. From 5:00pm-6:30pm there will be a gallery viewing featuring local artists. We encourage people to stop by and come learn more about all the groups involved in this unique event. From 6:30pm-8:00pm, there will be an informal support group which is open to everyone. We will have snacks and cowbells! A huge shoutout to The Southeastern Council on Alcoholism and Drug Dependence, Inc. (SCADD) for donating the food we will be offering on Friday. In the words of Lefty Cycles, "we are stronger together"!
Below is a list of other Norwich businesses that are participating in the downtown stroll.
