Winter at the Fairgrounds

Things are quiet at the Fairgrounds this time of the year. The Annual Dinner meeting was held on December 8, 2009, at the Harwinton Congregational Church in Harwinton. We have four directors who have stepped down from the Board: John Mazzochi, Ellie Woike, Paul Schweitzer & George Beck. All of these directors have given countless hours to make our Fair such a success. We can't thank them all enough for what they have contributed to our Society.

We have a new director this year; Phil Galullo has agreed to come on to the Board. Phil and his wife Kelly have been active members & workers for three years helping out painting on work nights & running the soda booths at fair time. We look forward to having him on our Board of Directors.
