Killingworth will be hopping this weekend

By Cathy Iino, First Selectwoman

Lots of fun things to do for good causes in Killingworth this weekend. Please observe social distancing and wear masks when indoors, for everyone’s safety and comfort.

On Saturday, September 11, the Parmelee Farm Artisan Market returns after a year’s hiatus. From 10:00 am to 3:00 pm., a lively assortment of vendors will be selling handmade crafts, art; and food. Admission and parking are free; park at the HK Middle/Intermediate School, just south of the farm. For those requiring assistance, two golf cart shuttles and a bus shuttle will be available. As always, the event is made possible by amazing volunteers; all vendor fees go to improving the farm. More details are available on Facebook.

Also on Saturday, there’s a fundraiser for the HK Backpack Program at the Barrel House, 176 Route 81. Check it out here.

On Sunday, September 12, 1-3 pm, the Killingworth Women’s Organization will hold an open house for Helping Hands, Killingworth’s food pantry, at the Center Schoolhouse at the traffic circle. KWO has been sprucing up the building, and they invite everyone to come see how things are shaping up. Please park in the commuter lot across Route 80 and be careful crossing the road. (By the way, if you wish to donate food or household supplies at any time, you can drop them off in the bin outside the schoolhouse–built by a local Boy Scout troop.)

These aren’t the only happenings in town this weekend–the Congregational Church holds its Fall Festival on Saturday; Parmelee Farm has a free concert on Sunday afternoon, to name just a couple of others.

Our community is strong and generous, and that spirit has kept us going through local and national crises like the one we remember this Saturday.

In gratitude,
