Starting December 1, if you stroll around quaint, historic Norwich, you’re likely to see lots of people dressed up as snowmen. A few others will resemble characters on Sesame Street. Those costumes are big moneymakers for charity, and so is almost every retail sale in town this month.
The town’s fundraiser, called “The Nineteen Days of Norwich” is the brainchild of Dan Fraser.
His family owns Dan and Whit’s, an eclectic and endearing general store and gathering spot.
