This lovely evening of music and fun will give us the ability to gather safely for a great cause and resume some sense of normalcy. This is my 7th year serving on the Asnuntuck Foundation Committee and my 3rd year as co-chair, and I am looking forward to conversing with old friends, singing all my favorite tunes and enjoying an outdoor evening, all while knowing that we are able to help students attend college and work towards their goals and dreams!”
