Don’t tell anyone, but the best job in the Boar’s Head Festival is being an usher. Jack Pott, Jim Grigsby, and Linda Fazio put in innumerable hours for 12 months. The heads of the committees work hard to pull all the pieces together in the weeks and months before January.
In December, AHCC was asked by the City of Hartford to provide overnight housing (including dinner and breakfast) for the overflow from the City’s homeless shelters. Since then, over 40 individuals have been involved in receiving 14 adults and 23 children, including a mother with six children who spent Christmas Day with us.
In 2019, AHCC’s Growth Team identified three affirmations to help define who we are and where we want to go. Since that time, Inquiry, Acceptance, and Impact have helped guide our programming, decision-making, and opportunities for involvement.
A Winter Sale is now in progress at the AHCC Thrift Shop. Winter coats, jackets, sweaters, and pants are all half price!
