Polka-thon to benefit Farm Share Program

The Greenfield Recorder, May 23, 2017, by

SOUTH DEERFIELD — Community Involved in Sustaining Agriculture’s Senior Farm Share Program is the beneficiary of an upcoming day-long polka-thon hosted by the Northampton-based WHMP radio station.

“Between 8 a.m. and noon, Sunday, June 4, listeners to WHMP’s Polka Carousel show can call 413-665-7100 and donate to the Senior Farm Share Program,” reads a press release.

A few hours later, “the polka party continues at the Hatfield Lions Club Paviollion from 2 to 6 p.m. with live polka music from Dennis Polisky and The Maestro’s Men, Polish food from Bernat’s Deli food truck, and beer from Berkshire Brewing Company.”

CISA’s senior program “makes fresh, local, healthy food available to low-income seniors, who often don’t have enough to eat or have trouble accessing fresh produce,” said CISA Communications Manager Clair Morenon in a statement. “The local farmer who provide the food get paid fairly for their produce, and they love providing food to the seniors and connecting with them. It’s a win-win!”

The local nonprofit agriculture agency is based on Sugarloaf Street. Admission to the Hatfield Lions Club Pavilion polka party and concert are $10 in advance.

Tickets can be purchased at WHMP’s offices, 15 Hampton Ave. in Northampton, and at the Hatfield Polish Club, Muffins Market in Whately, or online at
