Picnic Tradition

The Krieger and Gromak families, of Tolland, picnic in the parking lot at Hemlock Hill Christmas tree farm after cutting the Krieger's Christmas tree on Friday. The farm, run by the Kogut family, will close after 27 years at the end of this season. Noshing on left-over turkey sandwiches and hot chocolate are Chelsea Krieger, her boyfriend, Richard Osborne, of Stafford, Josh Krieger, Alan Krieger, Ed Gromak, Ann Gromak and Jill Krieger (l-r.) The Gromaks did not cut a tree this year since they will be traveling down south to spend the Christmas holiday with their daughters, but they came along for the last time in keeping with the two family's 22-year tradition.
