Over $1,300 was raised this holiday season for the Kent Food Bank through a fundraiser backed by First Selectman Bruce Adams.
He offered a package of four prints illustrating recipes that his wife created in 1984. Holly Adams, now living in an assisted living facility, was a longtime art teacher at Housatonic Valley Regional High School. Adams told the selectmen one print was hanging in the background of a scene in the movie “Tootsie.”
The Kent First Selectman also noted that the town hosted another successful Santa Fund and Holiday Food Program. 17 Kent children received presents and 31 Kent families enjoyed a Christmas dinner thanks to the community's generosity.
