PUTNAM, CT
–On Sunday, June 7, Day Kimball Healthcare will host the 4th annual Twilight in the Country – a dinner stroll and concert at Greystone Farm in Thompson, CT. A benefit for Hospice and Palliative Care of Northeastern Connecticut, Day Kimball HomeCare and Day Kimball HomeMakers, Twilight in the Country raises funds for the needs of the Hospice, HomeCare and HomeMaker programs and their clients. The event begins at 5:00 p.m. and admission is $75 per person. Tickets include a house tour, dinner, desserts and entertainment; all while strolling picturesque Greystone Farm. A cash wine bar will also be available.

Event co-chair, June Schoppe, said, “This is an experience to remember. The evening is special and unique. It provides an ambiance that can't be found anywhere else.”

The estate is owned by Robert and Susan Vincent who spent two years renovating the 1745 homestead and 19th century barns. The house, built by John Russell, was recently featured in the October issue of Early American Life Magazine and will be open for guided tours during the evening. The highlight of the evening is a band concert in the rescued 1845 Alice Ramsdell Barn. The barn and part of the house were salvaged from the former Ramsdell Farm on the banks of the now Thompson Reservoir. The concert features The American Band which was founded in 1837 and enlisted as a unit in the Civil War. The band's repertoire will include both traditional and versatile works.

Over the past three years, hundreds of guests have attended Twilight in the Country and the event has risen over $67,000. Day Kimball HomeCare, Day Kimball HomeMakers and Hospice and Palliative Care of Northeast Connecticut offer skilled in-home healthcare, personal support services and compassionate end-of-life care for patients and their families.
