What can be going through someone’s mind who will put a dog on a leash and tie it in the woods in cold and wet weather or in any weather?

The Suffield Observer Board of Directors will sponsor two scholarships to Suffield residents who will be entering an accredited two or four-year college in September.

In recent years, the news has spread that our local flora, including essential food crops, is threatened by the shrinking population of pollinating bees.

One plan for Suffield’s 350th anniversary celebration is to republish Robert Alcorn’s book, The Biography of a Town, along with a Volume 2, which would be a compilation of Suffield stories from the last 50 years that brings us from the late 1960s, when Alcorn’s book left off, through the past 50 years to 2020. Our tentative idea is to call it 50 Stories for 50 Years.
The 350th Committee has lots of exciting events, programs and projects in the works for Suffield’s anniversary celebration, and we need your financial support now to make them a reality. Please consider becoming a 350th Sponsor.
