“Everyone in Whigville appreciates our village’s rich agricultural heritage, which will be on full display during Harvest Fest,” said Patti Smaldone, leader of the Whigville Preservation Group.
“A team of dedicated volunteers has been planning for months so that we can raise funds to eventually preserve our agrarian way of life for future generations.”
“Whigville is a throw-back to another time in American history when farming was prevalent,” said Paul Rochford, President of the Burlington Land Trust.
“The landscape of Whigville, with its scenic views and grange, is increasingly unique in 21st century New England, and saving it is one of our top priorities.”
The Whigville Harvest Fest will take place on Sunday, October 28th from 10:00am – 2:00pm at the Whigville Grange, 153 South Main Street, Burlington, CT. The Burlington 5K Run/Walk will start at 10:00am at the same location.
