On Nov. 11 Susan and Bill Regan, founders of Foxfield F.A.R.M., attended the Will Power for Veterans event at Suffield High School and the Veterans Day celebration at the East Granby Senior Center. This gave them the opportunity to extend their alliance with the Farmington Valley Health District’s Resilience Grows Here program,, providing an expanded collaboration to better serve the needs of our heroic military personnel.
