We raised the roof on September 19, 2020 to celebrate the completion of the new Elizabeth W. Chilton Education Center, a.k.a., "the barn," and to thank our many donors including Richard L. Chilton, Jr., The Darien Foundation, and the McPherson family (descendants of the Mathers).  Barnraiser 2.0 and 3.0 followed in 2021 and 2022, respectively, raising funds for beautification and restoration projects.  Stay tuned for 2023!

Many thanks to all who joined us for Barnraiser 2.0.  We enjoyed cocktails and hors d'oeuvres, masterfully prepared by S.E.A.T., whiskey tasting by Sagamore Spirit, dinner on the barn lawn, and music by Petting Zoo. Our Barnraiser 2.0 raised funds for our beautification projects.
