After six months of Covid isolation people are ready for an autumnal celebration provided by the Round Hill Association.
On October 3, in the “Season of mists and mellow fruitfulness” as John Keats described autumn, the Round Hill Association, will sponsor its second annual Neighbor Day.
You can wander the lush fields and gardens of the Land Trust from 9-11 am and also watch demonstrations by fire fighters at the Round Hill Volunteer Fire Co next door during the same hours.
Across the street, the Round Hill Store will offer complimentary coffee and cider all day for people who mention Neighbor Day.
Next, head to the Greenwich Riding Trail Association’s Nichols Preserve for a walk. The trails will be open between 10:30 am and 12:30 pm.
After a brisk walk, what better way to indulge yourself on Neighbor Day than to drive to The Griff on King Street for brunch, offered between 10:00am and 2:00pm. Mention Neighbor Day to be offered a Mimosa, compliments of the house.
After your relaxing brunch, pick up a pumpkin for yourself and one for a friend at Augustine’s Farm at 1332 King St, before selecting some organically grown vegetables from Versailles Farms, open from 9:00am-5:00pm.
The Audubon Center will be open from 9:00am to 5:00 pm. They will have a Hawk Watch in addition to open trails.
After wandering all over backcountry’s wonderful sites you will need a snack from Happiness Is, in Banksville, open between 7:00am and 6:00pm. Mention Neighbor Day for a surprise treat.
Many Round Hill Association Neighbor Day participants, unable to have in person visits, are offering virtual celebrations on their websites.
The Brant Foundation has a website with a fantastic exhibit of Basquiat art. Check out Kelsey Farm’s website for winsome photos of horses and the website of The Study Fine Wines as well as that of Stateliness Fitness where a lady we know, who is buff and energetic, trains twice a week with Craig.
Backcountry religious institutions are also participating in the Round Hill Association Neighbor Day by offering special prayers for all of us who live in the area and for the day.
