STAY AT HOME IN WILTON SPONSORS SPRING HERB GARDEN DRIVE-THRU

 

Stay at Home in Wilton helped bring a little spring to its members by hosting an “Herb Garden Drive-Thru.”  After a trip to Gilbertie’s in Easton, CT to meet with proprietor Sal Gilbertie, the Stay at Home in Wilton Volunteer  team left with over 300 specially selected Basil, Parsley and Rosemary plants in flats and 300 pots with special soil generously donated by Sal Gilbertie.

 
 The next day the volunteers transplanted the herbs and made up gift bags that included the 3 individually potted herbs complete with 4 recipes from SAHW President, and cookbook author, Sally Maraventano Kirmser.  The Wilton Historical Society offered the perfect location for the drive-thru and each member that came by received their special gift bag, lots of smiles and joy at seeing one another again after the winter.   Many members and volunteers expressed how much fun and how creative the effort was.   They enjoyed receiving the variety of herbs, and recipes and look forward to some wonderful fresh Pesto and Focaccia bread.    Special thanks to all of the volunteers, Gilberties, and the Wilton Historical Society for making this a fun and successful event.  

 

 

THANK YOU FOR SUPPORTING OUR SENIORS….

Kevin Wall, recently announced the 2020 recipient of the Community Outreach Program:  Stay at Home in Wilton!

“The Arthur J. Wall Jr. Memorial Scholarship Fund is thrilled to continue our Community Outreach Program and award Stay At Home Wilton $5,000 from the proceeds of our annual September golf outing.  The golf outing is our only fundraiser and, beginning in 2012, we started to give back to other 501 (c)(3) organizations who help Wiltonians and the larger Wilton area – to date we have awarded over $65,000 to non-profits and simply could not do it without the golfers who play and friends and businesses who support our outing each year.  We are very grateful for the support we receive each year and pleased to help out other organizations who give so much to others.”, stated Kevin Wall.
 
Sally Maraventano Kirmser, President of Stay at Home in Wilton added, “This donation means so much to our organization and is so personal since Sue Wall has been a volunteer with Stay at Home in Wilton for many years.   It is so fitting that the legacy of the fund is now helping seniors who were contemporaries and friends of Art and Sue.”
 
 
 
Past recipients of the annual $5,000 gift have been Special Olympics of Connecticut, Trackside Teen Center, Wilton Police Gift Fund, Wilton Youth Council, Wilton Volunteer Ambulance Corps, Wilton Student Financial Aid Committee, Riverbrook Regional YMCA, Wilton Children’s Library and Child Guidance Center of Lower Fairfield County.    www.ajwallfund.org
