Dee Strilowich has knocked on the door of more than 10,000 local homes during the past two decades. And each time, the homeowner has happily welcomed her inside. That's because Strilowich is the town "Welcome Lady" and brings good tidings, along with a basket of local goodies and free gifts, to each home.
Strilowich founded Personal Touch Welcome with her husband, Joe in 1999, a home-visit greeting service welcomes new movers and congratulates new parents with a "dee"lightful basket full of community information and free gifts, valued at over $1800, from local professionals and businesses in the area. Sadly, Joe passed away in October of 2017, but Strilowich has continued the legacy of personal visits to locals, something Joe loved, alive.
This summer marks a milestone for Personal Touch Welcome - 25 years of knocking on doors and ringing bells in Ridgefield and Redding, and Strilowich is still going strong (thank goodness)!
If you know anyone moving to the Ridgefield or Redding area, encourage them to reach out to Strilowich by phone: 203-438-0128 or email Dee at
Thank you to Dee for bringing joy to so many local families and for supporting local businesses!
