“Thank you” Goshen Wine & Spirits

Goshen Community Care & Hospice would like to send out a big thank you to Goshen Wine & Spirits located on Route 4 in Goshen. 

During this time of coronavirus pandemic, they took the time to collect donations for our organization.  With all the change, regulations and work they had to deal with just to run their own business, they still took the time to help others.  This small business is what makes our community great! 

Thank you Greg Brick, Goshen Wine and Spirits and all the customers who donated!  We are so grateful to have your support!!



Goshen Fair – 2019

Thank you everyone who helped make the Goshen Fair such a successful fund raiser for our organization this year! From our wonderful Fair committee for GCC&H, to the board members and especially all the volunteers who gave of their time on a holiday weekend to sell water and ornaments. We are grateful to all of you!

We would like to acknowledge the Goshen Agricultural Fair committee for all their hard work, the amazing help from the Goshen Volunteer Fire Dept members for helping unload water for our fundraiser and Tom and Barbara Breor for all they do for our organization.

We take none of your time and energy for granted and know that we would not be successful without all of you! Thank you!





Holiday Ornaments – 2018

We at Goshen Community Care & Hospice are excited and looking forward to the unveiling of our new design for our holiday ornament for 2018. This will be a keepsake that will be treasured and used all year long. It will be great as a gift or a memory of time spent in our beautiful town. We look forward to hearing and seeing your reaction. See you at the great Goshen Fair on Labor Day weekend! Stop by our booths for water and a lovely holiday keepsake!

Goshen Community Care and Hospice is proud to offer this year’s ornament highlighting the Incorporation of Goshen, CT in the year of 1739, and our Town’s logo, “Land of Milk and Honey”. The ornament has been crafted out of pewter at Woodbury Pewter, in Woodbury, CT, and features the artistic work of Candace Breakell Fujii.

Candace grew up in Goshen, and was chosen to design a mural for the Goshen Fairgrounds, commemorating its 100th Year Anniversary. The mural, which took Candace five months to complete, was composed of eight large panels, depicting the various animals at the Goshen Fair. The mural remains on display in one of the exhibit buildings on the Fairgrounds.

Candace attended Southern Connecticut State University, where she studied Information and Library Science. During that time, she took a month-long hiatus to study Art History and Drawing in Paris. In 2013, Candace moved to Korea for a year, where she taught school children English and Art. Candace later returned to Paris, where she met her future husband, Taiki. They were married in 2015, and now reside with their daughter in Kawagoe, Japan.

Candace, today, is a gifted Freelance Illustrator who specializes in detailed, traditional illustrations of animals and fantasy line art using pen and ink, and other traditional materials. Her artwork is unique and lovely, and can be viewed at fujiicandace.artstation.com.

We sincerely hope that you enjoy our ornament, and very much appreciate your support of Goshen Community Care and Hospice. (860-491-HOPE)



Volunteer Recognition Lunch – 2018

On May 16, 2018, Goshen Community Care & Hospice celebrated the contributions of all of their volunteers by gathering at the Mary Stuart House for lunch.

It was an afternoon to celebrate our volunteers and all that they do for our organization from driving, preparing meals, providing visits to our hospice clients, providing wellness visits to those coming home from the hospital or a nursing home stay, helping at senior socials or senior lunch, helping with mailings for the organization or volunteering to sell water at the Goshen Fair.

The coziness of the Mary Stuart House hosted us a welcoming dining area and the Board of Directors provided the delicious foods and desserts.

Meeting each of the volunteers that day explains why our organization is so successful because each volunteer brings their special skills, unselfish giving and loving commitment to our town and it’s residents.




Goshen Fair – 2017

Thank you to everyone who came out to the Goshen Fair and supported Goshen Community Care & Hospice by buying an ornament or water or by volunteering your time to help man the water booths.

The weather was a bit less than cooperative which did affect our sales but the devotion and the spirits of everyone made the event fun and successful
