Elyse’s Country Journal – July 25, 2013 – HarneyRE – Salisbury, CT
Salisbury and the surrounding communities of northwestern Connecticut offer a wide range of unparalleled opportunities. Please enjoy Elyse’s Country Journal, published weekly on Wednesday. Elyse’s hope is that it will help open up a new perspective of our area.
  • The annual Jane Lloyd Fund Clambake returns to the Salisbury Winter Sports Association Satre Hill on Saturday, July 27, from 2 to 8PM. The clambake dinner begins at 5 PM and will feature lobster, steamers, raw bar, clam chowder, potato, corn on the cob, dessert and one beverage. Clambake dinner tickets, priced at $50, sell out every year and must be purchased in advance from Tanya Tedder at 860-435-9661 or Donna Lloyd Stoetzner at 860-824-5493. The event will feature live music, and grilled hamburgers and hot dogs will be sold. Admission is free, although donations to the Jane Lloyd Fund are appreciated.
  • All proceeds from the clambake are used to advance the mission of the Jane Lloyd Fund which helps cancer patients meet their day-to-day financial obligations while undergoing cancer treatments. When local Salisbury resident, 38-year old Jane Lloyd was diagnosed with cancer, she was unable to work full time, and the stress of meeting her financial obligations weighed heavily upon her. A large group of friends and community members assumed Lloyd’s day-to-day expenses, enabling her to live her final days at home. After her death, the Jane Lloyd Fund was established to provide financial support for families facing a cancer diagnosis in the Region One area.
