Rep. Noujaim joined local dignataries, clergy, and parishoners in welcoming Rima Fakih, Miss USA 2010, to Waterbury for the annual “Taste of Lebanon” festival at Our Lady of Lebanon Church on East Mountain Road. Fakih, a Lebanese-American, took time from her demanding schedule to come to Watebrury to spend the day shaking hands and signing autographs for her fans. During the visit Rep. Noujaim presented Fakih with a proclamation from Governor M. Jodi Rell declaring September 18, 2010, as Rima Fakih Day in Connecticut. As Miss USA, Fakih is spokeswoman for breast and ovarian cancer education, research, and legislation.
