MOFGA Volunteer Earl Littlefield

December 2016

Earl Littlefield and his wife, Donna, have lived in Thorndike, across from MOFGA's red barn on Crosby Brook Road, for 38 years, and they've seen a lot of changes in that time. Donna's grandparents used to own and grow potatoes on the farm where MOFGA now sits. Today Earl and Donna own an acre around their home – and that's how their involvement with MOFGA began.

MOFGA mourns the loss of a great friend and longtime volunteer, Ken Hirsch. His big smile and love of helping in the Country Store were always very much appreciated. Our heartfelt condolences go out to his family. We'll miss him very much.
