2020 Corn Maze at Lyman Orchards supports the Connecticut Cancer Foundation
Old Saybrook, CT – August 29-November 1, 2020; Lyman Orchard’s corn maze helps CT cancer patients and their families! The iconic Statue of Liberty, a symbol that unites all Americans, was adorned with a giant Heart, the symbol that universally stands for our show of thanks and appreciation for our Frontline Workers during this COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic. You learned about nurses, medical professionals, EMT’s, fire fighters, charitable organizations, and more. The Corn Maze was 4 acres, and there was a total of one mile of paths and hundreds of decision points. There was 10 positions in the Maze which coincide with 10 multiple choice questions on a passport that guides the visitors—if you answered correctly you went the right way, if you answered incorrectly you got lost!. The passports had multiple themes—you chose the subject that most interested you. The average time needed to navigate the entire Maze was 30-40 minutes. The Maze was interactive, engaging and fun for all ages.
John Lyman, Executive VP, said “This was our 21st Corn Maze. This will be the first year that we will donate fifty cents of every ticket sold to the Connecticut Cancer Foundation.
Jane Ellis, CCF Executive Director acknowledges their generous donation with “sincere appreciation for supporting a local charity to financially assist CT cancer patients with everyday living expenses right in our own backyards.”
The Connecticut Cancer Foundation is a 501 (c)(3) non-profit organization founded in 1987 to provide financial assistance to CT cancer patients and their families and to fund cancer research. To learn more go to www.ctcancerfoundation.org
