“FIRST UP” on GMW: Wednesday, Jan. 2, 2019
Today we debut a new feature, “FIRST UP”. This column will highlight shorter announcements or updates, and help you get a quick start to the Wilton news of the day.
Real Estate Office Moves
There are moving boxes in the future for a couple of Wilton real estate businesses–not for their clients but for their own offices. The Wilton office of Berkshire Hathaway is giving up its current space in Town Green at Wilton Center at 101 Old Ridgefield Rd., and moving across the street to the Wilson Building at 142 Old Ridgefield Rd., in the space next to Tusk and Cup. Also trading spaces is Wilton’s Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage, which has already vacated its long-held spot in the Hubbard Building at 77 Old Ridgefield Rd., on the three-way corner at Center St.. Representatives there are mum about where they’ll be relocating, but CB realtors are temporarily working out of the Coldwell Banker Westport offices.
New Year’s Eve DUIs
Monday night’s New Year’s Eve seemed like a (thankfully) quiet night for the Wilton Police Department. According to public information officer Lt. Robert Kluk, there was only one DUI arrest all evening and no accidents.
Holy Happy Couples, Batman!
Congratulations and Best Wishes are due for Rev. Shannon White, Pastor at Wilton Presbyterian Church, and her love, Virgil Roberson, a therapist and fellow minister. They got engaged shortly before New Year’s, right in front of the Christmas tree at Rockefeller Center!
