Lunch Bunch Plus - AMENDED
New England Carousel Museum, Bristol
Lunch at One Fifty Central
Thursday, January 20
 
Members, please join the Farmington Woods Woman’s Club on Thursday, January 20 for our Lunch Bunch Plus outing. We will experience the magic of the New England Carousel Museum right next door in Bristol (https://thecarouselmuseum.org/), will have an in depth look at the beauty and history of Carousel and will learn about the art, history and fabrication of this little known form of American sculpture. We will discover the collection of over 200 antique wooden horses and objects, and will see the restoration department where they are currently working on horses from Lake Compounce to actively preserve these American treasures.
  
The museum is also home to the museum of Fire History and the Greek Parthenon Room with its impeccable sculptures and breathing art. You will leave with a new appreciation for Greek art and history.
 
Admission fee is $7.00 for seniors, payable at the museum. Our tour begins at 10:30 and will last approximately one hour.
 
Lunch will follow two miles away at Forestville’s One Fifty Central, an American restaurant (https://onefiftycentral.com/). It was opened in May 2013 by Gary Santorso, the owner of the former Silo restaurant that was on Main Street in Farmington.
 
Please arrive at the upper clubhouse parking lot at 9:50 to carpool, and plan on giving your driver $2.00 for gas. There are entry stairs but also a switchback ramp.
 
By Tuesday, January 18, make your reservation by calling Anne Fitzgerald at 860-673-1216 and leaving a detailed message or emailing to afitzgerald138@gmail.com.  Be sure to include your name and whether or not you will drive, your riders if any, or if you need a ride.
