Happy Thanksgiving from Karla Murtaugh Homes

It’s one of my favorite weeks of the year – Thanksgiving! Such a great time to spend time with friends and family, and of course enjoy great food. If you’re traveling for the holiday, I hope you stay safe. If you’re staying here in town, I hope you’ll join us Thursday morning for the 42nd Annual Turkey Trot benefitting the Boys  & Girls Club of Ridgefield. Megan Searfoss, owner of Ridgefield / Darien Running Company, does a great job as emcee and race announcer of the race. A top business owner and a highly ranked runner herself! You can still sign up here if you haven’t already: https://runsignup.com/Race/CT/Ridgefield/RidgefieldTurkeyTrot


This is one of my favorite nonprofit organizations in our town and I’m very proud to be a long time board member. My husband Greg and I are big advocates of giving back. The first organization we got involved with was the Ridgefield Boys & Girls Club. I have been fortunate to serve on the Executive Board for many years and incredibly impressed by the leadership of Mike Flynn and his talented and dedicated team. We are so fortunate to have this organization available to all of our youth here in town.


The Boys & Girls Club of Ridgefield is a youth activity center designed to offer programs for school-aged children after school and during vacations in five core areas: The Arts, Character & Leadership, Education, Health & Life Skills, and Sports, Fitness & Recreation. Club programs and services promote and enhance the development of boys & girls by instilling a sense of competence, usefulness, belonging and influence.  From homework help to computer access for research, to innovative after school activities, to sports and vacation programs, the Boys & Girls Club of Ridgefield is at the forefront of providing exciting opportunities for school-aged children. They also facilitate scholarships to assist exemplary students in furthering their education and give out these scholarships to the Youth of the Year at the annual Great Futures Celebration.

During the holidays and all year long, I’m so thankful to live and work in a town like Ridgefield. We have so much to be grateful for here: an incredibly safe town, some of the best schools in the country, a thriving arts community, fabulous restaurants, a dedicated philanthropic community, and a wide variety of leisure activities no matter your interest. There’s truly something for everyone, and for every family. I’m grateful for my clients, team, friends and family. From my family to yours, I wish you a very happy Thanksgiving.
