Meet Melissa!

Westport mom of three grown kids, and a 3rd generation lawyer, Melissa knew at age 9 she wanted to be a lawyer when she sued the National Little League Association and the Town of Fairfield because she was not allowed to play baseball. As she says, “she has been fighting for her clients ever since!” As one of very few female Divorce and Family Law attorneys in the state of CT (maybe more valuable post Covid time than ever=)), Melissa founded and runs Needle|Cuda, a firm devoted to balancing the needs of its clients in difficult situations, and preserving the long-terms interests of the family. Melissa is known for her red hair, dedication to her clients, and her love of sports. Fun fact – she started a moms Fantasy Football League to help she and her mom peers connect with each other – and their teenage sons! She’s a rockstar mom and lawyer, and a force to be reckoned with!

Meet Steve, Owner of Camp Playland!

When they say a Camp Director can make a camp, this couldn’t be more true when It comes to Steve Bloom, owner and director of Camp Playland in New Canaan! Started by his grandparents in the 1950s, Steve grew up on the Playland campus, and knew from an early age that running a camp one day was just part of his DNA! A proud dad to son, Albie, he and his wife have enjoyed this time with their son, seeing many “firsts” but is eagerly awaiting the return to “normal life!” This summer, Playland will run (beginning next week) with a modified – but incredibly safe – program (currently waitlist only), and can’t wait to welcome many new – and old – families back!!
