Melissa Mack Quote:

"Please express my sincere appreciation to the Friends of Suffield and their volunteers for what was the best Suffield on the Green since I've lived here! There was a wonderful "vibe" of excitement. I was there every minute of both days. All Generations were happy and enjoying themselves with something for everyone. The crafts were especially good this year too! On behalf of the Town, its residents and visitors, thank you for a great job! 

Best Regards,

Melissa Mack
