Ansonia Harvest Festival
Every October the city of Ansonia holds the Harvest Festival. This event draws many vendors, musicians, performers, and crowds. There is plenty of food and plenty of fun. And every year Church of the Resurrection has been a regular participant with it's Fried Dough stand. This year we expanded our offerings and placed a greater emphasis on outreach. We created postcards with information about the church and distributed these with the food. Some of our parishioners event went up and down the block giving these out. We also used the Kate Miserocchi band as well as a means to raise the visibility of the church. We had discovered that for a number of years it was assumed that the Church Fried Dough stand was being run by a home for the elderly. This year we wanted to make sure that people understood who we were and what we were doing. The band was part of that effort to raise the visibility of the church in the community. Next year we will go bigger and better!
