Pompanuck Farm's
Annual Memorial Day Weekend

CANCELLED for 2012

Dear Friends of Pompanuck Farm,

It is truly with mixed emotions that we write to inform you that we have decided to cancel our 2012 Annual Memorial Day Community Pot-Luck and Celebration of the Arts. We’re taking a break…and here is why:

As you may recall, in 2011 we embarked upon a sabbatical process…a wonderfully restorative time designed to give the Pompanuck staff and board, along with the buildings and grounds, a period to rest and reflect. With the help and support of our board we have strategized our mission and have begun to reshape our programming to better serve the needs of our Pompanuck community. One of the most exciting accomplishments of the past year has been the successful launch of the Round House Bakery, a much sought-after source of delicious healthy baked goods and a business which provides on-the-job training in the bakery arts. And we have finally taken on a number of long-overdue maintenance projects to safeguard and enhance the Pompanuck facilities. We are very excited about what has been happening over the past year.

While much has been accomplished, there remains much still to do. It is this long list of works-in-progress that precludes us from gathering in May, 2012.

For twenty years the Pompanuck Farm Memorial Day gathering has been known as the event of the season…a celebration of the many talents of our local artists and artisans as well as a time to come together to reflect upon the costs of human conflict. We are committed to hosting this important event for many years to come.

We thank you for your understanding and we look forward to seeing you all again soon.

  From Scott and Lisa and the Pompanuck Farm Board of Directors
