Please Support Your Community News Site's COVID Coverage

The coronavirus crisis has nearly halted the local economy — including media advertising. That means local, independent news organizations such as ours must fight for our own survival while continuing to provide critical news and information as a public service during this unprecedented situation.

Feb. 22 was a beautiful day, not just because of the weather, but also because of the spirit of generosity that lasted all day long. Guilford area businesses and individuals came together for the benefit of Guilford Meals on Wheels. Meals on Wheels relies heavily on donations to provide hot meals to Guilford’s elderly, infirm, and disabled. We could not be more grateful to all who made our event a success.

The event, Paddle for a Cause, was hosted by The Guilford Swim and Racquet Club . This was its inaugural tournament, and it was an honor that Meals on Wheels was chosen to be its beneficiary.

A host of shoreline businesses and individuals contributed: those that provided delicious refreshments, those that provided goods and services for our raffles, those that attended, and those that purchased raffle tickets.

Panera Bread and The Fresh Market kept the players well-nourished throughout the day. Raffle items were contributed by Two Roads of Stratford, Pasta Vita in Old Saybrook, Headhunters Hair Studio in Clinton, Apples Etc. in Branford, Chamard Vineyards in Clinton, Squeaky Clean Car Wash in North Branford, and Mindful Gift Store, KC’s Pub, Pet Valu, Agway, Villa Nail Salon, Shoreline Yoga & Wellness, Verizon (Guilford Commons), and Mary’s Culinary Classes, all in Guilford. Wonderful art contributions were made by Barbara Kirwin, Michael Crampton, Brendan Loughlin, Kiernan Photography, Linda Westgard, and Susan Seseske Wolanic.

We at Meals on Wheels wish to extend our heartfelt appreciation to one and all. It was a wonderfully memorable day.
