Each Wednesday, the Wilton Historical Society opens up its grounds to host the weekly Farmers’ Market, organized by the Wilton Chamber of Commerce. On the season’s opening day, June 6, Chamber director Debra Hanson says she noticed that there were no picnic table at which guests could enjoy treats from the market. They were old and had simply disintegrated, according to museum officials.
That was until one of the vendors stepped in. Pete Campbell, owner of Horseshoe Farm and one of the full-season market vendors, offered to build new tables! Within two weeks, he delivered two brand new, beautiful picnic tables.
“He donated his time and expertise and built them with materials donated by Rings End Lumber and some support from the Chamber. We most sincerely thank Pete for his wonderful contribution!” Hanson wrote in an email.
