SOUTHBURY - A group of southwestern Connecticut residents hosted more than 30 soldiers and their families at a private home last weekend as part of the Wounded Warriors Project.

Local volunteers and current members of the Armed Forces gathered at Lake Lillinonah in Southbury to share a weekend of water sports. Residents say the event gave injured servicemen and servicewomen chances they may not otherwise have in life.

Some soldiers came from as far away as California to take part in the festivities.
