Town’s 49th jUNe Day Set for June 28

More than 300 United Nations staff, representatives and their families are scheduled to come to Westport Saturday, June 28, for the 49th annual jUNe Day hosted by the town and the United Nations Association (UNA) of Southwestern Connecticut, also known as the International Visitors Committee of Connecticut.

The day kicks off at 10 a.m. with opening ceremonies at the Saugatuck Elementary School on Riverside Avenue, featuring remarks by U.N. Ombudsman Johnston Barkat and U.N. Under-Secretary General Joseph Verner Reed, according to event organizers.

First Selectman Jim Marpe and UNA President Bill Hass are scheduled to welcome the guests, and jUNe Day Chairperson Michaela Maccoll will outline the day’s activities, organizers said

The annual jUNe Day celebration was established in 1965 by the late Ruth Steinkraus Cohen, the founder of the UN Association of Southwestern Connecticut and International Visitors Committee of Connecticut, in observance of the signing of the U.N. charter on June 26, 1945.
