From green living to green giving, there’s lots to learn at this year’s Memorial Day Fair.
The local community service groups at the fair this year will offer opportunities for all to get involved and help the well-being of the town.
Among the seven community service groups, the Weston Sustainability Committee will return to this year’s Memorial Day Fair. The committee will share how far the town has come and showcase current projects for “greener” living in Weston.
The Weston Garden Club will sell homegrown bouquets of flowers, as well as gardening tools and other odds and ends to help with garden projects.
Volunteers at ITN Coastal CT will be housed at the fair to educate townspeople of the services they offer seniors, and will look to recruit drivers in Weston.
As always, the Boy and Girl Scouts will be proudly posting their current successes and offering membership opportunities.
And this year the Weston High School classes will be joining the booths to sell ice cream, tattoos, and sunglasses.
Led by students, “Cranes for a Cause” will be selling homemade wares to benefit others.
New this year among the community groups is Friends of Lachat, the organizaton that spearheaded the survival and planned refurbishment of the Lachat historic home. Friends of Lachat will be available to share their vision for the future of the Lachat property, which may be a town farm with a farm stand, fresh eggs, and community garden plots for rent.
The fair will also host several new and returning vendors. Returning this year are: Kempo Academy, home of Karate, Kung Fu and kickboxing and longtime partner Ventura Portraits.
New to the vendors are: Wilton Sports Complex on Danbury Road in Wilton, and Buy, Save & Give, a new Trumbull based company.
