Support GCF

I learned about the Granby Community Fund from a co-worker who was a member and resided in Granby as I did. After attending a meeting and hearing about the work and commitment of the members to raise funds for community organizations in one annual campaign, I became a member!

Granby Community Fund

You may have read that the Hartford Foundation has created 29 new funds, one for each of the towns in our region, as part of its Greater Together program. Each of the new funds is called a “community fund.”

Kudos for town meetings

I want to congratulate the town’s employees and elected officials for their adaptation to the current pandemic environment. Communication has always been the cornerstone of effective local government and the timely adoption of videoconferencing enables that for Granby.

Ban fur trade

In February, activists held a rally on the north steps of the state capitol building seeking a ban on fur sales and manufacturing in Connecticut. State representatives David Michel of Stamford, Anne Hughes of Easton, Redding and Weston, Dorinda Borer of West Haven, and Mike Winkler of Vernon attended the event in a show of support.

Local restaurant praised

The Drummer left out one of Granby’s restaurants by failing to mention Rancho Viego. Last I knew they had served over 40 free meals to families struggling during this epidemic and that was over a week ago.

Support for Lampert

I’m writing in support of Audrey Lampert, candidate for Connecticut House of Representatives, 62nd District. I’ve known Audrey for years.

Ban fur sales

The North American fur industry kills 4 million animals every year, according to Humane Society International. Connecticut can do its part to end this barbarism by following California’s lead and banning fur sales and manufacturing.
