The Ridgefield Education Foundation (REF) continues its’ “Merchant of the Month” program to promote local business. The Tutoring Club will be the featured business for October.


The Merchant of the Month program is about “celebrating and supporting Ridgefield as a whole. Our local businesses and our schools are two gems that make Ridgefield special. Now you can shop local and support REF all at once”, says Avery Costigan, REF President.


Maria Markus, owner of the Tutoring Club agrees. “We are so proud to support REF. Most of the families move to Ridgefield because of the great education our town provides. REF is now becoming an integral part of Ridgefield’s education system and by supporting REF we are supporting our schools, our students and the future of our town.”
