Members and volunteers of Suffield’s 350th Anniversary Committee gathered by Suffield Hardware one evening to promote the committee’s truck raffle fundraiser. From the left: Amy Reay, Christine MacClintic, Art Sikes, Lester Smith, Sharon Bruno, Kathy Werth, Cari Cieri, Norm Noble, Eric Remington and Kacy Colston. Amy’s service dog, Delancy, decided to sit this one out.

Suffield’s 350th Anniversary Committee is hard at work raising money to pay for our town’s birthday celebration in 2020. We have been selling tee shirts and ball caps, and we’re hosting a golf outing and a beer tasting, but our biggest fundraiser by far is the truck raffle that will be held at Suffield on the Green at 1 p.m. on Sunday afternoon. We need your help to make it a success!

Truck raffle tickets are $20 each and no more than 4,000 tickets will be sold. Those are pretty good odds! Tickets are available at Suffield Hardware, the Kent Memorial Library, the West Suffield Mini Mart, Suffield Lumber, Artioli Dodge in Enfield, Sheridan’s Pro-Tec in Southwick and online at

What if you don’t want a truck? You can sell it and use the money to buy something that you do want! Consider buying a ticket for a charity that you like to support. Winning this raffle could be a big windfall for them.

We do have less ambitious fundraisers too:

Our 350th Anniversary Golf Fundraiser will be Friday, October 11 at the Suffield Country Club. Download a registration form at

Brew Fest 350, a beer, wine and spirits tasting adventure will be held at the New England Air Museum on Friday, November 22. Check back for more details at

Visit the 350th booth Saturday mornings at the Suffield Farmers Market to buy “All Things Suffield” tee shirts and Suffield ball caps.

We want to pull off an amazing 350th celebration for everyone in town. Please help us by supporting these fundraisers. If you have other fundraising suggestions for us, please send an email to
