Celebrate community at annual Harvest Supper

Share in a traditional evening of family fun on Oct. 23 at the Round Hill Community House’s annual Harvest Supper.

Neighbors in the Round Hill area have celebrated a harvest supper since the time when back country Greenwich functioned mainly as a farming community. Each fall, after a season of hard work, families would gather together in each other’s homes with produce and turkeys from their fields, which they cooked together as a celebration of the earth’s bounty.

In a pre-television age, neighbors met weekly throughout the year for evenings of sociability and in the 1920s, they built the Round Hill Community House with their own hands so they would have a place to gather.

The Harvest Supper continues today, but no longer do neighbors spend days in the kitchen roasting turkeys, mashing potatoes or baking pies. Nevertheless, this year’s Harvest Supper promises friendly company, a sumptuous turkey dinner with all the fixings and a spirited songfest of traditional songs to close out the evening.

Organizers also encourage attendees to bring their holiday shopping lists, as the artisans from the Round Hill Craft Studio will have handcrafted items for sale.

The cost is $35 per adult and $15 per child. Attendees are also asked to bring a pie or dessert to share.
