On July 12th in the early morning hours, Hannah Perry, owner of the Giggling Pig Art and Party Studio on 178 Greenwood Avenue, lost everything in an early morning fire.
Hannah and The Giggling Pig, had just opened their Bethel Studio a few months ago and had been offering classes and summer camp in this beautiful space. This morning the space is filled with water and smoke and everything but The Giggling Pig's outdoor sign has been destoyed.
While this location is destroyed, Hannah and her team are relieved everyone is OK and those who were displaced are getting the support they need.
As a mother herself, Hannah realized that her camp and business needed to be back on track, as soon as possible. By 8am, the morning of July 13, Hannah had found a new space across the street at 4 Library Place and is working to get her business and campers back on track.
Hannah is no stranger to being there for those who need help. A few year back, The Giggling Pig's Shelton Studio helped students in Sandy Hook.
Some news reports from today: An early morning fire at a building in Bethel took multiple fire departments to knock down. Margaux Farrell was first on the scene.
