Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays from the Junior Women’s Club of Wolcott. We would like to thank everyone who supported our projects in November especially the “Vote Against Hunger” Collection on Election Day benefitting the Wolcott Food Pantry. A special thank you to all our Veterans’ and everyone who came out to honor them on 11/11 on the Town Green. We hope they enjoyed the sandwiches and desserts at the American Legion. Santa’s appearance at the Annual Holiday Tree Lighting on November 26th was a delight to all of the children and the young at heart! Of course, the hot chocolate hit the spot as well!

We are grateful to assist our Wolcott community throughout our 36 (yes 36) years supporting Toys for Tots & Teens. This is a rewarding project for our club and one that is made possible only by the generous toys and monetary donations we receive from residents, local businesses, and organizations.
