Recently, Ridgefield Thrift Shop representatives Patricia Hellman and Barb Hillery visited Ridgefield Guild of Artists with a generous grant check to help with ongoing maintenance of the 100+ year-old barn. Though the Guild had closed with the Ridgefield Schools, they met outside before the “Stay At Home” order from the Governor due to Covid-19.
“We are thrilled to receive one of the more than 90 grants offered to local community organizations this year,” said Mary Pat Devine, President of Ridgefield Guild of Artists. “Ridgefield is very lucky to have the Thrift Shop, and the Guild is grateful to be a recipient of their generosity. We hope to repair our crumbling terrace where we meet for gallery openings in good weather and where our campers have outdoor activities in the summer.”
