Just a few weeks away! On Saturday, September 19th CCDL will once again host our Annual Family Picnic at Boothe Memorial Park – 5800 Main Street on Putney, Stratford, CT.

We'll supply the burgers, hotdogs, soft drinks (no alcohol allowed in the park) and condiments. You can bring the family, the chips, dip, or whatever side dish (and a utensil to serve it) you're most famous for making, and some lawnchairs or a blanket to sit on. (Helpful hint: write your name on a piece of masking tape and attach it to your bowls/spoons/etc so you are sure to get them back)

This is a FREE event for CCDL members and their families. Bring some cash, we'll have our usual merchandise for sale as well as a special shirt just for this event. We'll also be raffling off lots of prizes. (The more raffle items the better, if you would like to donate something to the raffle, that would be great!

It doesn't have to be gun-related or expensive, anything legal that other people might like.)

So come to Boothe Memorial Park and enjoy the day with other CCDL members. Bring blankets, chairs, and your family. Come have a good time, relax, and celebrate our right to keep and bear arms. Come and get to know us, and learn more about what CCDL does to protect your rights as a gun owner in the state of Connecticut.

As I said, this a family picnic. There will be horseshoes, frisbees and wiffle balls, and all sorts of games for kids young and old. There is no alcohol allowed in the park, but pets on a leash and lawful carry of firearms are permitted. Please use an appropriate holster, and keep it holstered.

When: September 19, 2015 from 11am until 4pm.
Where: Boothe Memorial Park
5774 Main St. Putney
Stratford, CT 06614

Note: Please do not park on the grass or in a handicap spot (unless you have the placard). If the parking lot is full (it's a little small), you can park nearby on Putney Chapel Way (see the map below), and walk into the park from there. It's actually almost as close as the parking lot, and you won't have to walk up and down the hill.

2015 Picnic Flyer

The Connecticut Citizens Defense League (CCDL) has secured Ambassador John Bolton as a speaker for a small, private dinner that we are hosting at the Patterson Club in Fairfield on July 20th, 2014. This fundraising dinner is specifically designed to appeal to gun owners that are also business owners, gun manufacturers and other high-profile individuals. The event will be by invitation only and will be closed to the press. 100% of net proceeds go to the CCDL Litigation fund to fight further infringement on our Second Amendment rights.

Tickets are available for a donation of $1000 per person or $9000 for a table to ten for gun clubs and various manufacturers. There will be a cocktail hour in which people can speak with Ambassador Bolton personally and get a photograph. We also plan to have a live auction for a couple of highly collectible firearms from Colt’s Manufacturing Company and Ruger Firearms. Colt’s has generously donated a unique Colt 1911 Marine Pistol from the Colt’s Custom Shop for which they have a 5-year wait list.

Connecticut is on the front lines for gun control. If last year’s laws are allowed to stand, they will be a blueprint for further infringements on our gun rights for ALL states to follow. If you are not interested in attending, I would appreciate it if you could circulate this to some of your friends and associates that might be interested.

Please help support CCDL in fighting for YOUR Second Amendment rights!

Contact Bob Ferguson with interest.
