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 Volunteer Chuck Lakin

September 2016 – When MOFGA wants some fine woodworking done, Chuck Lakin is likely to be asked. Lakin supports MOFGA's mission but admits to being a poor gardener. "I'm not good with things that need daily attention," he says, adding, "It's no fun to do something you are not good at." So he does woodworking.

MOFGA Volunteer Bri Beecher

June 2016

Dressed in an outfit specifically color coordinated with that year's Common Ground Country Fair volunteer staff Fair T-shirts, Bri Beecher is a super salesperson at the Rose Gate during the Fair. As coordinator for the membership table at that gate, she speaks about MOFGA enthusiastically.
