I’m wearing my ‘It Takes a Village‘ hat here to let you know about our fundraiser on Saturday, September 25th. ‘It Takes a Village’ matches a volunteer with a family for weekly home visits for the first three months after a baby is born. In the ten months since we began, we have served fourteen families with a roster of over twenty volunteers. Our fundraiser, called Soup, will take place at the Cummington Community House from 5-8pm, and we hope to raise $500 to reimburse our volunteers for travel and childcare costs while visiting their Village families. At Soup, several Village volunteers will be serving delicious soups made from the bounty of their gardens. Bring your own bowl! Buy a raffle ticket to win a beautiful bowl made by a local potter! There will also be an activity table for kids to make pinch pots that we will glaze, fire and return to the kids before Christmas.

Please come for a quick bowl of soup after the Hilltown Olympics in Goshen, or before the Ashfield Film Festival! We would love to see you. If you would like to hang out all evening, we would love that, too!
