Meet transfer, Jessica Preece.
Q: How many years have you been involved with the Junior League?
A: I joined the Junior League in the Spring of 2018
Q: From which League are you transferring?
A: Transferring from The Junior League of Northern Westchester
Q: What brought you to the Greater New Haven area?
A: We purchased a house in Southbury, CT, in May, having never been to the area before house hunting.
Q: What's the best restaurant you've tried since moving here?
A: Probably Mercato's Italian Kitchen and Bar in Southbury. I don't get out to eat much these days.
Q: What is something you're excited to do in Connecticut this fall?
A: We found a local farm just down the road that is owned by this little old lady and she sold us our pumpkins this year, we went back for apple picking, and they do cut-your-own Christmas trees, which we've never done before.
Q: Are there any fun traditions from your former League that you would like to get started in the Junior League of Greater New Haven?
A: Not that come to mind. They hosted a lot of sponsored dinners, where a portion of the nights proceeds went to the Chapter, and the social events were really great to get out and see people.
