Beyond our modest costs of putting on this wonderful annual event, virtually all of the money raised through the Simsbury Woman's Club Arts & Crafts Festival goes back into our community. Proceeds go to toward scholarships awarded to Seniors graduating from Simsbury High School with plans to attend a vocational, technical, 2-year or 4-year institution of higher learning and to an adult woman who has returned to college to continue her education. The scholarship winners are invited to and acknowledged at the Club's annual luncheon in May. The balance of the proceeds are distributed to local non-profit organizations at the Gifts to the Community luncheon in April. Recipients of financial support from our 2016 Arts & Crafts Festival were: Simsbury ABC House, Simsbury Summer Theatre, Simsbury Police Department's Community Division, Farmington River Watershed Association, Simsbury Historical Society, Simsbury Free Bike and the Simsbury Senior Center.
