Giving Thanks: Ridgefield Glass, Fairfield County Bank help repair Ballard Greenhouse

To the Editor:
Last week, both The Ridgefield Press and The Danbury News-Times ran articles about serious vandalism at Ballard Greenhouse. The response of the Ridgefield community was swift and gratifying. Before the day was out, Ridgefield Glass and Fairfield County Bank stepped up to cover the cost of repairs. Other private donors sent touching notes about how important Ballard Greenhouse is to them.
As I write, the Greenhouse is repaired, and we are starting to grow plants for the Mother's Day Plant Sale. I send sincere thanks to all the donors who are helping to preserve our precious antique Greenhouse. I also thank our local newspapers for keeping us informed.
