NACF would like to thank the local businesses sponsoring the Harvest Festival this year - The Harp, Kraus-Fitch Architects, Singer-Potito Associates, Puffton Village, Stakeholders Capital, Florence Savings Bank and Greenfield Savings Bank. Special thanks to Amherst Community Connections, our partner in providing delicious local food for the festival.
Volunteers needed to help with the Harvest Festival!Volunteering to help with the Festival is a fun way to get involved! More than ever, we need volunteers (at least 120), prior to, on that day and after to make this a successful event. If we get more than enough we can shorten the 3 hour shifts. For those of you who volunteered last year, again, many thanks. We hope you'll consider doing it again this year! SignUpGenius will allow you to sign up for the activity and times of your choice. We will do my best to get you what you want!
