NEW HAVEN — Addison County Fair and Field Days in New Haven is quickly approaching and for the third straight year, the Cornwall 4-H Musketeers of Middlebury are hoping that you’ll stop by their “Cards for Soldiers” booth in the 4-H Youth Exhibit Hall sometime between Aug. 6-10 to make a handmade card with some encouraging words for  an American soldier to say thank you for fighting for our freedom.
Collected cards will be donated to Soldiers’ Angels and will be distributed to deployed soldiers around the globe. In the event that you will be unable to attend, there will be a card table set up in the children’s room at the Ilsley Public Library for the week as well.
If you, or an organization you’re affiliated with, would like to help the Musketeers reach their goal of 3,000 cards by Sept. 1, please contact the event organizer, MaKayla Foster, via email at [email protected] for details.
