“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 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)
