The Wilton Family YMCA is changing things up with their plans for this year’s Wilton Community Celebration. The 2015 event will take place at a new location and a different time of year than it has in the past. For the event’s 29th year, the celebration will be held at Wilton’s charming and scenic Millstone Farm with its beautiful and unique setting on Sunday afternoon, May 31 from 3–7 p.m.. The “Farm to Table”-themed dinner will be sponsored by Fairfield County Bank.
Guests will enjoy seasonal inspired cocktails, music, good company and tours of scenic Millstone Farm. A delicious dinner artfully prepared by Chef Tim LaBant of The Schoolhouse of Cannondale will be served surrounded by the lovely view of farm fields and the rolling hills beyond as the local work of the Wilton Family YMCA is celebrated.
“The Y is, and always will be, dedicated to building healthy, confident, connected and secure children, adults, families and communities,” said Bob McDowell, executive director at the Wilton Family YMCA. “Every day our impact is felt when an individual makes a healthy choice, when a mentor inspires a child and when a community comes together for the common good.”
Proceeds from the Farm to Table dinner directly support the financial assistance program and will help young people achieve their potential, empower people of all ages to lead healthier lives, and strengthen the bonds of community.
The Wilton Family YMCA will continue to honor deserving citizens with the 29th Annual Distinguished Citizen Award. The award recognizes individuals and organizations that demonstrate a volunteer commitment to improving the quality of life in Wilton.
The Farm to Table dinner will bring together the community, leaders, donors and members to celebrate the strides the Wilton Family YMCA has made to improve the health and well-being of children and families in the Wilton community.
