Fun Hops at Friends Spring Event

The Friends of Suffield’s “Welcome Spring” egg hunt and bunny visit on April 6 at Spaulding School brought baskets full of joy to local kids and their families. In addition to visiting the Bunny, little ones searched for treat-filled eggs, got to meet – and pet – a couple of real bunnies, enjoyed spring-themed games and much more.

Senior Valentine Social

Cupid’s arrows will fly for the 32nd year in a row, as the Friends of Suffield organization again hosts its popular Senior Valentine Social for local seniors. This year’s “sweet” event will feature a delicious lasagna dinner, with all the tasty trimmings – along with bingo, door prizes and the traditional crowning of the King and Queen. 

Suffield seniors are invited to join the festivities on Saturday, February 9, from 11:30 a.m. – 2 p.m., at the Suffield Senior Center on Bridge Street.

Friends of Suffield Awards Grants

Local community service got “a shot in the arm” on May 8 at the Suffield Senior Center when the Friends of Suffield presented several local organizations with grants to fund their activities in 2018. Representatives from groups across town—ranging from Girl Scouts and Boy Scouts to the Crossroads Food Pantry and Emergency Aid Association—took part in a brief awards ceremony to accept their checks and pose for a photo.
