The Westport League of Women Voters sponsored a Bridgeport Volunteer Fair to give residents the opportunity to volunteer with organizations that serve the city’s children and families.

Bridgeport Mayor John Fabrizi thanked the crowd for the volunteer work they have done or will do in the city, and said no group in the state does more for the city than Westporters.

“Westport residents have made the most significant impact (on Bridgeport) than any volunteer group in Connecticut,” he said. “There are a number of agencies here that will appreciate any help you can give whether it’s an hour a week or an hour a month. It will go a long way.”

(UPDATE)A fire touched off by a toaster oven in the kitchen of the Westport Health Care Center early today was quickly extinguished by the building’s fire suppression system, fire officials said.

The incident just before 6 a.m. at the elderly health care facility at 1 Burr Road on the corner of Post Road West also set off the fire alarm, but the building was not evacuated.

Assistant Fire Chief Larry Conklin said the 85 patients in the complex were “protected in place” while firefighters ventilated smoke from the kitchen area.

Firefighters checked all floors of the building, and there were no injuries to any of the staff or patients, he said. Fire officials said later that two plastic dishwasher trays left on top of the commercial toaster oven ignited, starting the fire.

Filmmaker Sumner Jules Glimcher will screen his documentary “A Taste of Provence: Art, Culture & History” on Sunday at 2 p.m. in the Westport Public Library’s McManus Room.

Professor emeritus of New York University and a Westport resident for 30 years, Glimcher rented a villa outside Aix-en-Provence in July 2005 and drove almost 2,200 miles to visit and film towns, villages and historical sites in Provence.

The film features footage of musical events, including Aix’s annual July music celebration, which was devoted that year to Mozart, and sequences on two of the province’s most famous artists, Paul Cezanne and Vincent Van Gogh.
