The celebration took place at Building One Community's location at 75 Selleck Street in Stamford and was attended by B1C students, clients, volunteers, staff members, and Stamford Mayor David Martin. Attendees enjoyed cake, posed for pictures at a "selfie station" with welcoming signs written in various languages, and listened to Mayor Martin read a proclamation.
