Letter: Art of the Wreath is a festive evening
To the Editors:
On Friday, Dec. 6, the carriage barn at Ambler Farm was glowing with holiday cheer as friends and neighbors gathered to celebrate the season. This year’s wreath auction showcased the most stunning and creative array of wreaths yet! The best of the old and the new graced the walls of the barn, while trees decorated in white lights were scattered throughout the room. As guests entered the barn, they were welcomed by the unmistakable fragrance of Fraser fir trees. Attendees enjoyed a gorgeous array of stationary and passed appetizers prepared by A Delicious Affair of Norwalk. Guests enjoyed toasting the holidays with a lovely assortment of wine, beer and non-alcoholic beverages from our friends at The Wilton Wine Shoppe.
We give heartfelt thanks to each of the talented and creative wreath donors. We would also like to thank our many merchants in town for their ongoing support and donations. Special thanks go to Emily Humiston and Tall Trees Landscaping for all of their help and supplying the trees, as well as to Debbie Corrigan and Jet Blue for their donation. We would like to thank Kevin Meehan and the Ambler Farm apprentice mentors for their assistance in parking and also to Brian Gruseke, Andy Schlesinger, Jim Kineon and Dave Etzbach for volunteering their time as well. On behalf of Ambler Farm, thank you again to everyone who attended last Friday evening. Our greens sale will be open again this coming weekend, Dec. 14 and 15, from 9 to 4 on Saturday and from 11 to 4 on Sunday. For more information about the farm, please visit amblerfarm.org.
We wish everyone a joyous holiday season.
