Dining and donating at FV Inn

FALLS VILLAGE — The first installment of a monthly fundraiser for local charities raised more than $1,200 for the Falls Village Children’s Theater.On Thursday, July 28, the Falls Village Inn served lunches, Marshall Miles and Jill Goodman did a live broadcast on WHDD radio, and children who have participated in past productions of the children’s theater entertained the guests.Colin Chambers, an owner of the inn, said that the proceeds from the lunch were $240, and Denise Cohn from the theater said the silent auction raised more than $1,000.“We were ecstatic,” she said.Cohn added that plans for the work necessary to get the theater building at 103 Main St. open and available for use are about done and bids are going out shortly.Among the items on the silent auction table: handloomed towels from Karin Gerstel, a quilted tote bag from P.D. Walsh’s Country Store, photographs by Judith Secco (donated by Leone Young), Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle art from Jim Lawson, a basket of sweets from Freund’s Farm Market, glasswork from Gilmore Glass, a Rockwell Zip Snap from Lindell’s, two admissions to Lime Rock Park, an oil change from Jacobs Garage, and gift certificates from White Flower Farm in Torrington, the Millerton Veterinary Hospital, the Pond Restaurant in Ancramdale, Kidaroos in Lakeville, Japanese and Asian Antiques in Great Barrington, Mass., and Toymaker’s Cafe.A handsome leather handbag and a beaded bracelet and necklace set were donated anonymously.Chambers said the charity for the August lunch is the Little Guild in Cornwall. “We’re asking area residents to ‘take your dog to lunch’ at the Falls Village Inn, with lunch for the dogs, a prize for the ‘hottest dog’ and a chance to meet dogs that are  up for adoption. “We found it fitting because they do call August the ‘Dog Days’ of summer.”
