Dinner, auction to help rebuild Scoville barn destroyed by fire
CORNWALL â€” A Feb. 6 potluck dinner and live auction will help with the rebuilding of the Scoville Farm barn.
The historic barn on Town Street burned to the ground New Yearâ€™s Eve.
Now, farmers and the greater community are coming together and lending a hand. Typical of the intrepid spirit of New England farmers, the Scoville family is rebounding from the loss and preparing to rebuild. There will be some insurance money, but those funds are rarely adequate for a full rebuild.
The Cornwall Agricultural Commission has organized the fundraiser. Everyone is invited to bring a dish to share at the dinner, which begins at 6 p.m. and is in the Housatonic Valley Regional High School cafeteria. The heavy-snow date is Feb. 13.
Auction items can be anything from gift baskets and certificates to new toys and handmade items. Items should be brought directly to the dinner.
