Approximately 8:45pm tonight (Monday, August 23, 2010) saw a wild cat cub at edge of bridge over Farmington River soon after the turn onto Avon Old Farms Road off Route 10 in Avon. Looked like a well-fed cub, tannish color but looked like it had faint stripes. Tail looked good length, not stubby. Did not look like an adult animal; looked obviously to be a cub. I slowed and it went off onto incline off side of road. Have never seen a wild cat before in the 19 years have lived in CT.
The Farmington River Watershed Association is holding an indoor country fair fundraiser February 21 from 3-7 p.m. at the Old Well Tavern in Simsbury
Check out the Web site for details – www.frwa.org
Feel free to promote the event – use share links below or email, or print this flyer and hand it out, post the flyer on your facebook page or in your office, anything at all!
The event will feature a great country artist – Nicole Frechette and her 5 piece band; beer donated by the Farmington River Brewery (proceeds of beer sales going to FRWA); and the Old Well Tavern is donating 1/2 of its hot dog, hamburger and french-fries-in-a-cup sales to FRWA. Come out and join 200 of your fellow river lovers for a boot-stomping great time! Let’s bring some southern sunshine into a late winter afternoon. Tickets are $15 per person. Please call the FRWA office (860-658-4442) to reserve tickets – as space is limited.
We are anticipating a huge crowd and are thrilled that – because of all of your kind efforts – we will have nearly 20 booths throughout our indoor country fair marketplace.
If you have any questions at all – or any suggestions – please do not hesitate to contact me. Thanks again for helping to make this event a real on-of-a-kind fundraiser – I can’t wait to see you all there!
