Before our town officials were, well, town officials, they had other jobs. Think back to your first-ever job. Ever wonder where our town officials, like Judy Barron of the , got their start in the working world?

North Branford Patch: What's something residents should know?
Barron: You are welcome to bring friends to the Senior Center who are non-residents. Even if you do not live in town, you are welcome to become a member of the Senior Center. Certain activities do require a non-resident fee, but all are welcome to participate in trips and activities.
North Branford Patch: What was your first job?
Barron: I grew up in Ansonia and when you were 15, the town offered employment for the summer. I was placed at the Joseph Doyle Senior Center. I spent my summer doing activities and serving hot lunches to the senior citizens in my town. Little did I know that my summer experience at 15 would turn into my career at 36. I enjoyed it then and love it even more now!
