Farmingbury Women’s Newsletter
Farmingbury Women’s Club Newsletter Hi everyone! Welcome to July. It’s hard to believe that our year is going by so quickly. We as a club were very busy during the past months and look forward to the warm summer weather, Our active part of the year is from September thru June. We enjoyed many undertakings during this time. Some of our events for the year included, a Membership Tea, the Breast Cancer Awareness event, our first Fall Festival, followed by our Christmas Party, a very informative presentation by Flo Goodman, of the Historical Society, and her knowledge of successful gardening.
We also were honored to have Donna Palomba, Jane Doe No More, as a guest speaker. We thank our guest’s speakers and wish them well. Our ladies gladly volunteered to help the members of the Special Needs at their local events.
Memorial Day, we were part of the famous Wolcott parade. Thanks to Auto Avenue Sales of Waterbury, our ladies were privy to riding on the back of the truck, it was fun throwing candy to the kids, waiting and seeing them scramble to quickly pick it up. Thank you to Anthony Battaglio of Avenue Auto for donating his truck & driver for the Parade!
