The profits from the Holiday Tree Gala have all been returned to our community through two grants to community organizations, and an award to a graduating senior.
Requests from Suffield Community Aid for their community garden and Phelps-Hatheway House for a display case to house historical memorabilia have been fully funded along with an award to High School student Brooke Tillotson. Brooke will be studying Plant Science and Environmental Sustainability at Cornell University this fall.
Two other students received awards this month through the Garden Club’s Memorial Fund. Joseph LaFlamme and Jackson Smith. Joe plans to study Natural Resources and Environmental Science, and Jackson’s focus will be Wildlife Ecology. Both will be attending the University of Maine.
