Our annual Denim & Diamonds Gala scheduled for Saturday, March 28, 2020, was postponed due to the coronavirus. Some of you are holding on to your tickets; some of you have asked for a refund and some of you just made a donation. We thank all of you for your support. We cannot pick a new date just yet because of all the uncertainty, but please stay tuned.
To honor first responders and families who have lost loved ones during the pandemic, EEDRC is sponsoring an Enfield Candles at Twilight Christmas Tour on December 19, from 4:30 until 10:30 p.m. Contact Gerry Middleton if you would like to order luminaries to set up for that evening. Or email for additional information.
Our Sunflower initiative turned into a pilot program this year because of the Coronavirus, but we were able to provide several farmers with thousands of Sunflower seeds: some of the recipients were Troy Fulkerson (photo on bottom left), who planted two gorgeous fields on Thirteen Bridges Road; Chester Williams, director of ABC World Changers, had a sunflower in a pot planting workshop; members of EEDRC planted sunflowers at the DERP Town Square (middle photo) and Reginald Cotton planted sunflowers at the school farm plot. Next year we hope to go full swing with our sunflower initiative - and spread the sunflower love throughout Enfield.
