The members of CJR’s Litchfield Aid have announced their new fundraiser ~ “High Style in the Hills.” A gala evening and fashion show in lieu of the traditional House Tour that The Aid has been organizing for more than 66 years. Members have voted in favor of giving the tour a respite, and are very excited about introducing this new event involving community merchants, designers and leaders in helping to raise funds for the programs at CJR.
