Giving Thanks

It is with truly heartfelt thanks that we enter this Holiday Season. For many it will be very different from the festivities of years’ past.

Gatherings will be smaller, and family and friends will be “zoomed” in from all corners of the globe. We humans have proved we are nothing if not resilient during these unprecedented times!

Enjoy the calmness that this year will bring, with time to look back on the people in our lives who enrich us every day. Start new traditions and reach out virtually to that person you’ve been meaning to reconnect with, but are always too busy to sit down with.

And even more importantly, remember those who are far less fortunate than ourselves – those who have suffered job loss and furloughs. Celebrate the remarkable health care providers who have been on the front lines during this pandemic and continue to risk so much. Give where you can and celebrate the joy that comes from it.

If nothing else, 2020 has proved that our homes are truly our safe haven. We are honored to have assisted so many buyers and sellers this year as they begin their next chapter.

Although this Thanksgiving may look different, the spirit is the same – give thanks and enjoy one another!

Supporting the “Virtual” Turkey Trot at Boys and Girls Club Ridgefield

Karla Murtaugh Homes is once again proud to sponsor the Boys & Girls Club Ridgefield Annual Turkey Trot
It wouldn’t be Thanksgiving in Ridgefield without it and we hope you will join us VIRTUALLY this year! For almost 40 years, the Boys & Girls Club’s Turkey Trot has been an annual tradition for so many – it truly wouldn’t feel like Ridgefield without the Turkey Trot, and although a virtual format will be much different, it will still allow us to hold this beloved Ridgefield event!

As you know, the rapid spread of COVID-19 has led to uncertain times for families in our community. BGCR has cancelled all other major fundraisers to support the public health crisis, all while continuing to serve the youth in our community. The Turkey Trot and the financial support it creates for the Club has never been more important, in fact, the impact will be greater than ever. We know it won’t be the same, but by moving the Turkey Trot to a Virtual Format you can run anywhere you choose, (literally anywhere in the world you are celebrating Thanksgiving!), within the time frame, as long as it equals 5k (3.1 miles)! All Turkey Trotters will be able to race and record their registration time from Saturday, November 21st at 8am through Thanksgiving evening, Thursday, November 26th at Noon 12pm.

This year, all funds raised will immediately provide services for the most vulnerable children in our town. Children in crisis, without family guidance, with disrupted home lives, in foster care, and suffering economic hardship, all of which has been intensified due to COVID-19. With your annual support of the Turkey Trot, you help to ensure that their needs do not go unmet. We understand that the virtual format is not for everyone, but we hope you will still consider supporting the Club by donating the amount of your entry fee, or perhaps even a little bit more given the necessity of the Club’s services this year. Thank you in advance for your support, this has been an incredibly tough year financially for the Club, and we truly couldn’t do it without our Club community.

We hope to “see” some of you virtually at the 39th Annual Turkey Trot – and if not, we look forward to a huge 40th Annual Turkey Trot celebration in 2021!
