Insider Updates 2018

CFPA is now going to its supporters and visiting each county in Connecticut. The goal is to meet with supporters and volunteers and share stories, insights, and suggestions about the trails and Connecticut’s forested land.

In April, a group of Fairfield County CFPA supporters, along with members of the Winslow Society, visited the Jones Winery in Shelton for an evening of hors d’oeuvres and wine tasting. The winery’s tasting room was full of positive energy… and good wine. Eric Hammerling spoke about current issues at the Capitol. Clare Cain discussed trail work being done in the area.  A lot of work in light of this winter’s unusual storm damage.  

The Jones family, CFPA supporters and Winslow Society members, spoke about the farm’s history and their long involvement with CFPA. Terry Jones offered a moving tribute to his late father, Philip Jones, who was so important to CFPA’s success.

CFPA and it members are grateful that the Jones family welcomed everyone to their farm and hosted such a lovely evening.

Still haven’t been to an “Insider Update?” There are more on the way! In May, we will be in Middlesex County at City Bench, followed by a trip to the Connecticut College Arboretum in New London County this June. Keep your eyes peeled for more photos of our events, and if you’re a member, look for our invitation in the mail!
