Sharon Connect and Comcast are celebrating with pizza

SHARON — A town-wide celebration of virtual completion of the project that expanded internet access throughout the town will be held on Friday, May 17, from 1 to 5 p.m. at Veterans’ Field.

The Sharon Connect Task Force and Comcast Xfinity are hosting the community party to celebrate that 270 previously unserved homes and businesses are now enjoying access to high-speed internet service, thanks to many volunteer hours over many months, the work of town officials and the generous professionalism of the Comcast Xfinity company.

There will be free refreshments in the form of brick-oven pizza baked on the spot and soft drinks served by Big Green Truck Pizza. And there will be games and recorded music to add to the festivities.

The Comcast company will bring a mobile showroom with customer service people ready to answer questions, demonstrate products and offer personalized tech help.
