Connecticut is getting ready to roll out the red carpet as the Nutmeg State prepares to welcome First Lady Jill Biden back to visit with Navy families.
The White House announced that Biden will travel to Groton in New London County with Secretary of the Navy Carlos Del Toro to visit with US Navy families of the USS Delaware at approximately 4:30 p.m. on Thursday, Dec. 9.
Following that appearance, Biden and Toro are scheduled to attend a holiday gathering being held by the United Through Reading at the US Submarine Veterans Club in Groton at 5:15. p.m.
The trip will mark the First Lady's second trip to Connecticut since President Joe Biden took office.
In March, Biden and lifelong Meriden resident Miguel Cardona, the former Connecticut Education Commissioner took a tour of an area elementary school to see how students and teachers were dealing with the COVID-19 pandemic in the classroom.
