The Country Butcher has become the last major donor to support the support the Tolland 300th Anniversary celebration planned for 2015.
Owner Stephen Boyer has pledged a $3,500 in-kind donation to the anniversary committee.
The Country Butcher provided excellent food and service when the committee and the Tolland Historical Society held a reception May 12 at The Lodge at Crandall Park II to thank the 300th anniversary sponsors. The business is also expected to provide food at another anniversary event in 2015.
“Stephen Boyer and The Country Butcher’s staff provided us with exceptional service and a delicious array of food at the reception,” Celeste Senechal, co-chairwoman of the anniversary committee, said. “We really appreciate Stephen’s support and look forward to working with him again in 2015.”
Boyer, a native of town, said, “We did this because we love our hometown. Tolland is an example of what small-town America stands for and what it is all about.”
The Country Butcher will be honored for its donation before the town council on June 24 at 7:30 P.M. in council chambers at town hall.
The anniversary committee and the Historical Society are planning months of events in 2015 so that the landmark will be remembered as an inclusive, townwide celebration.
Events will include a Charter Day celebration on May 12, 2015 to mark the actual 300th anniversary of the day when the state granted residents a charter to form their own town. A gala is planned for May 16, 2015. A monument honoring the 59 pioneers who first asked the Connecticut Colony to make Tolland its own town will be dedicated on June 13, 2015.
The celebration will culminate on Sept. 19, 2015 with a large regional parade and a townwide picnic.
Businesses can support the celebration at one of several funding levels. Residents can be part of the Tolland 300 Club by donating $300. Checks should be made out to the Town of Tolland, with “300th anniversary committee” in the memo line. Donations can be mailed to the Tolland 300th Anniversary Committee, Town Hall, 21 Tolland Green, Tolland, CT 06084.
