Jewelry sale and music

On Wednesday, April 18, from 11 to 1:30, members of the Turnover Shop will conduct a jewelry sale at Ogden House during the monthly luncheon. The Turnover Shop is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that has been in Wilton Center for more than 50 years. More than 150 volunteers raise money for Visiting Nurse & Hospice of Fairfield County, PTAs and other Wilton school organizations, as well as more than 75 other local charities. Over the years the Turnover Shop has awarded more than $1 million to deserving organizations. High-quality consignments of furniture, jewelry, antiques, and clothing as well as donated items are offered for sale in this lovely shop, often called one of the town’s “best kept secrets!”

Chefs from the Wilton Woman’s Club will prepare and serve lunch at noon. Lunch will be followed by musical entertainment provided by the Wilton High School Orchestra under the direction of Malcolm Kahn, who teaches in the middle and high school.

Call 2503-834-6240 to reserve your place for lunch.
