Bake Sale at CJR Cars for Kids

It’s become a tradition!  The first bake sale was held in 2014, and because the results were so positive it has continued. It is an event enjoyed by all - the bakers, the organizers, and the car buffs. On average we raise $800 that all goes to CJR.  That’s a lot of cake!

2019 Events

The litchfield open house & Garden Tour

300 Years of architecture

in celebration of Litchfield's 300th year     


The Aid’s Sixty-Seventh Open House Day will be a one-mile walking tour within the Borough of Litchfield, a National Historic Landmark District.

The rain or shine benefit will begin with a Preview Tour and Party on Friday, July 12, followed by a tour from 10 AM to 5 PM on Saturday, July 13.  The 2019 event will feature nine notable homes, the majority of which are located on Litchfield’s stately North and South Streets. Representative of Litchfield’s 300-year history, the tour will feature houses that date from a relocated 1685 Saltbox and will take guests through three centuries, ending with a stunning 1954 Marcel Breuer Mid-Century Modern home. The homes on tour, including Georgian, Greek Revival, Colonial, Victorian-Italianate, and of course the prevailing Litchfield Colonial Revival style, have been selected to capture over 300 years of village life and architectural interest in the thriving, vibrant center of Northwestern Connecticut.  Further details about the event will be announced later this year.
