We can all work together to put food on the table for so many struggling families in Connecticut and help save a long time dairy farm at the same time.
This is being lovingly produced by, Heather Colby, Carol Dahlke, Ann Nyberg and Anna Rubino and we hope you will join us for our fundraiser: “A Connecticut Christmas – for Connecticut Food Bank and Tiffany Farm”, will be held at High Hopes in Old Lyme, CT!
This event is being hosted by High Hopes Therapeutic Riding, Inc. and we thank them for that. When you head out to this event, if you’ve never been to High Hopes you are in for a treat and you will hear all about what they do.
We will have music and hot coffee and this will be neighbor helping neighbor. Your price of admission is non-perishable food.
It is time to help our neighbors: Connecticut Food Bank reports that the need for food in Connecticut is up an incredible 30% over last year.* The need is up a stunning 100% in areas that never needed to ask for food.*
Tiffany Farms has been around since 1841 in Lyme, CT. In September 2010 the lower barn burned down and at the time was holding equipment, antiques and over 1000 bales of hay that would have fed the dairy cows over the winter. The Farm is in need of our help to rebuild the barn and replace the hay for the animals this winter. Please join us this holiday season to make their season a little brighter.
Enclosed are more details about the farmers market portion for Tiffany Farm. The Farmers Market will be a component of an over all fundraiser for Tiffany Farm and the Connecticut Food Bank.
