What Makes Ridgefield so Special? #4

I went to Lava Java this afternoon because owner Phuong Tran was donating a portion of today’s proceeds to the family of Antonio Pickett and I wanted to donate money too. Phoung hung an umbrella from the ceiling for donations and folks filled it up.

She told me people had been coming in all day to donate, some even going over to IQ Credit Union to draw money from the cash machine.

Antonio worked at Lava Java for several years after he graduated from Ridgefield High School and studied music at Opus School of Music.

Rob Melton, owner of Opus played his guitar at Lava Java for three hours in honor of Antonio.

Where else could you find a community with such caring people? Thank you Ridgefield!
