Rotary Chicken Dance
It was a hot time at the Rotary booth on the south green during Suffield on the Green where 700 delicious chicken dinners were sold. A record! Saturday was also a busy day for Rotary hotdogs and hamburgers. Thank you to everyone who bought food at the Rotary concession. Proceeds from the booth enable Rotary to support our community. On the north green was another Rotary booth which distributed 300 free opioid pill disposal bags. If you did not get a chance to buy the pewter ornaments depicting various Suffield locations, contact Gayle Demko at Demko@gmail.com.
