On April 21, the Somers Land Trust held a very successful fundraiser at the Stone House to raise funds to begin the process of renovating the Reynolds Farm Area, including the Reynolds House in Angle Fly Preserve.

This would have been absolutely impossible without the kind generosity of the following: Christine & Robert Beshar, Lisa Delzio, Mary Lou Dunne, Maryann Iannietti, Patty Kalba, Ella Mae Lorack, Kathie Pacella, Rob Russell, Doris Jane Smith, Jessica Troetti, and Peter VanWart, Jan & Bob Antonucci, Bella Ella’s Pizzeria, Bicycle World, Croton Creek Steakhouse and Wine Bar, Fred Astaire Dance Studios – Brookfield, CT, Froggy’s II Deli & Catering, Front Street Cellar, Donald Gambino, Jeannette Gerfin, Lauretta Jones, Il Forno Trattoria, Learning Express – Baldwin Place, Le Fontane Ristorante, Dorothy Lorenze, Michael Lubchenko, Mama Rosa’s Ristorante, Nest Floral Design, New York Sports Clubs – Baldwin Place, Purdy’s Farmer & The Fish, Suzanne Rossini, Salon D’Avanti, Dan & Gail Simpson, Somerfields, Somers Custom Framing and Gifts, Somers Deli, Somers Diner, Somers Historical Society, Somers Wine and Spirits, Taste: Gourmet Deli & Catering, Traditions 118, Peter and Rosey VanWart, and Who’s Cooking?

We hope that you can join us at our next event, a performance of The Ugly Duckling on Sunday, July 21 at 2 p.m. in St. Luke’s Episcopal Church in Somers. Alyssa and Peter Reit present a fresh, new setting of this classic Hans Christian Andersen’s tale. Using traditional Scandinavian folk tunes as the musical backdrop for the storytelling, the magic of the harp and horn beautifully accompany the text, illustrating the Ugly Duckling’s inner and outer journey from being a sad outcast to one who is respected, admired, and included in his community. The presentation is complete with a musical appetizer of classics and folksongs from Scandinavia, plus an introduction to both instruments. For tickets, email

Your support in allowing us to continue in making strides at Angle Fly Preserve is very much appreciated!
