The 40th annual Union Congregational Church's Harvest Fair has taken place and it was the perfect day for the fair! The sun was shining, the leaves in full color, the adults bought apple pies and shopped for treasures, while the children played games and jumped in the moon bounce.

I'd like to send out a very big thank you to the following list of local businesses for their generous donations to the silent auction this year. The auction would not nearly be as successful without their help. We very much appreciate their support:

Bailey's Restaurant, Townsend; Black Bird Cafe, Mill Run Plaza, Groton; Bliss Bakery, downtown Groton; Community Chiropractic, downtown Groton; Dr. Peter Breen, Family Dentistry, Groton; Filho's Cucina, downtown Groton; Gervais Ford, Ayer; Gibbet Hill Grill, Groton; Jack O'Lantern Liquors, Ayer; Karen Riggert Photography, Groton; Kitchen Art of New England, Mill Run Plaza, Groton; Lavender, downtown Groton; Main Street Cafe, downtown Groton; Mind Body Spirit, Mill Run Plaza, Groton; Nashoba Valley Veterinary Hospital, Westford; Sarah Webb Massage, Groton; Steve Legge Math Tutoring, Groton; TBH Designs, Groton; Your Bridge to Healing, downtown Groton ... plus the donations of several church members and individual artists: Melanie Ketelhohn, Sheila Smith, Ken Hansen, Ginny Fraser, Bonnie Marchesani, Erica Davenport and Bonnie Martin.

This year was a great success and great fun. We look forward to next year! Thank you!
