"Are not." "Am so." "Okay, prove it!" "How?" "You know, I had to prove I was a real princess once," she says. "I'm sure we can use the same method . . ." and she leaves him snoring on a tall pile of mattresses. But when the princess is in danger from a giant octopus, she quickly discovers the benefits of cooperation! Inspired by their success, the pirate and his new princess friend sail off together in search of further adventure.

ZUMBA at the Carousel Museum

Aug 7 @ 9:30 am - 10:30 am

As part of our Take Care Tuesdays the Carousel Museum is continuing to offer Zumba with Marisa Murray.

Marisa Murray, licensed ZUMBA Fitness instructor, was born to a ballerina mother in Indonesia. Though dance was in her blood, Marisa found that Ballet was not for her. She began her journey in search of the dance style that best fit her which ultimately led to Zumba. Zumba classes at Valley Ballet & Dance Fitness fulfilled her passion for dance while also benefiting her health benefits in a fun and exciting way. Encouraged by others to become an instructor, Marisa found her calling. With a BA from University of Hartford in Graphic Design and an artistic talent Marisa found Zumba instruction to be a creative outlet. Marisa’s Zumba class features energetic creative dance choreography with a focus on total fitness.

FREE Artist Reception - Art of Bernard Jucevics  (15,580 Views)


4-6pm
Light Refreshments Provided

Location:
Harry C. Barnes Memorial Nature Center
175 Shrub Road
Bristol, CT 06010

Bernard Jucevics was born in Eastern Europe in 1939. He is a self-taught landscape artist who paints primarily in acrylics. He couples his passion for art with his love for nature in order to create a wide variety of landscape paintings. A country meadow, a forest, or the setting sun provides all the inspiration he needs to transform a blank canvas into a work of art.

Bernard has had his work displayed in a variety of settings. He has successfully sold his art through hospital auxiliaries and he has also been featured in various galleries throughout Litchfield county. He was also the first place winner in an art contest presented by the Blick Art supply company. In addition, Bernard donates some of his artwork to fundraisers and other humanitarian causes.

Bernard is always seeking new techniques that will further improve his artistry. He enjoys creating atmospheric paintings that draw you into the beauty of nature. His passion for painting has been a meaningful part of his retirement and his later life development as an artist is inspirational. It serves as a reminder that creativity can blossom at any age.

Crocodile Club 2018   (14,454 Views)


Crocodile Club 2018

August 31 @ 12:00 pm - 2:00 pm

America’s Oldest Lunch Club returns
137th annual Crocodile Club August 31
Back in the Ballroom!

The Crocodile Club began in 1875 in the Lake Compounce Ballroom and is now back in Ballroom again! The New England Carousel Museum, a non-profit treasure in the Connecticut community, once again brings you the annual dinner meeting at Lake Compounce on Friday, August 31, 2018. The Crocodile Club will celebrate its 137th reunion dinner with its unique gathering of individuals. Speakers put aside political differences to celebrate this important part of history and the public is invited to join.

We will have direct transportation to and from the Ballroom as Lake Compounce will be closed for the season. As a special treat from our generous hosts, Crocodile guests will be able to ride the Carousel from 12 – 1 pm. Festivities will begin with the social hour at noon (when crocodile tears are shed) with a beer and wine cash bar. Plantsville’s own Paul Gregory’s will be preparing the famed Crocodile lunch menu of lamb, fried corn, tomatoes, sweet and white potatoes, and watermelon. During dinner, a lively program with CT’s politicos as guest speakers will follow. Remember, good speeches and bad jokes are limited to three minutes per person, and NO serious political speeches are allowed. Several guests are already scheduled to appear, most notably our most loyal Crocodilian in recent years, Nancy Wyman, who will make her last appearance at Crocodile Club as Lieutenant Governor of CT.

We are told by the Norton family that the “Crocodile Club'” was formed in 1875 when Gad Norton, a former legislator, who started the amusement park in 1846, decided to thank his colleagues in the State Legislature for their help in passing a statute that changed the town line between Bristol and Southington so as to put his farmhouse in Bristol. The reason for this request was so that he could vote in Bristol where he did all his trading and knew more people. Also, in the days of horses and buggies, old dirt roads, and tough winters, the three mile ride to Bristol was a lot easier than the six miles to Southington.

Never will you see and meet so many candidates from all sides in one place in such intimate surroundings, having a good time kidding each other, with no serious politics involved. This policy was dictated to the original group by host, Gad Norton himself, who said, “there will be no serious politics allowed, no post-mortems from the last legislative session, just pleasant sociability, good fun, and good food.”

Tickets, available at the Carousel Museum, are $50 each or $55 at the door. Stop in to purchase your ticket, call the Museum to put it on your credit card, or mail to the Crocodile Club, c/o Carousel Museum, 95 Riverside Ave, Bristol, CT 06010. Make checks payable to the Carousel Museum. The dinner registration form can be downloaded from the Carousel Museum website. www.thecarouselmuseum.org

You must have your ticket with you in order to enter. For more information contact the New England Carousel Museum, 95 Riverside Avenue, Bristol, CT 06010. 860 585-5411.
