On December 11 (Wakeman Town Farm, 134 Cross Highway, 11 a.m.-1 p.m., $5), Westporters are invited to raise a cup (cider), and toast both the return of Mike and Carrie and the reopening of the Town Farm to the public.
Also on tap: the unveiling of Wakeman Town Farm’s new logo, designed by Miggs Burroughs. Mugs, t-shirts and hats with the new logo will be available for holiday gift giving.
Youngsters can decorate cookies and make gingerbread homes, while adults learn about the Town Farm’s upcoming events: educational programs, kids’ camps, and internships focusing on sustainable farming.
Welcome home, indeed!(Want to get a jump on the open house? Check out the live holiday wreath decorating workshop December 4, 10 a.m.-noon. Click here for details; then scroll down.)
