Pasta Dinner Fundraiser for Charity Water (you are Invited)  (11,547 Views)


Many of us have no idea what it's like to be thirsty. We have plenty of water to drink -- even the water in our toilets is clean!

But many people around the world don’t have that luxury. Every day, about 1,400 children die from diseases caused by unsafe water and poor sanitation. But it doesn’t have to be that way. There are simple solutions like drilled wells, spring protections and BioSand filters that help provide clean water to communities around the world.

SATURDAY, MAR 9 AT 5 PM
Pasta Dinner Fundraiser for Charity Water
1043 Stafford Ave, Bristol, CT St. Gregory CCD Hall

We are having a Pasta Dinner Fundraiser to help charity: water build these types of projects around the world, and we are looking for anyone who can help us. We need help selling Tickets and we need Raffle prizes for our event.

Adults: $10.00 donation, Kids (under 10): $5.00 donation

Invasive Species Workshop  (6,944 Views)


Invasive Species Workshop

March 20 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm

On March 20, 2019 at 6:00 PM, the Bristol Public Works Department, in conjunction with the Environmental Learning Centers of CT (ELCCT) and the Bristol Garden Club, will host a workshop on Invasive Species at the Bristol Public Library (Main Library, 5 High Street).

An invasive species is a plant, fungus, or animal species that is not native to a specific location (an introduced species), and which has a tendency to spread to a degree believed to cause damage to the environment, human economy or human health. Since the invasive species evolved elsewhere, they lack natural enemies in an area and are flourishing unchecked. In some instances, this allows them to become a dominate species within an ecosystem. The results are a reduction of biodiversity to both the native plant and native animal communities.

-Mr. Scott Heth, Executive Director of the ELCCT, will discuss existing invasive species that have spread throughout Connecticut and various control techniques for invasive plants.
-Dr. Jeffrey Ward of the CT Agricultural Experiment Station will discuss invasive insects and how invasive insects and diseases have affected trees in our neighborhoods, parks and forests.
-Mr. Peter Picone, CT DEEP Wildlife Biologist, will discuss enhancing habitat using native plants and give examples on the management of invasive species conducted at Sessions Woods Wildlife Management Area in Burlington, CT.

If you are interested and know others who would benefit from this informational session, please attend and tell your friends and family about the program. All are welcome!
Light refreshments will be generously provided by the Bristol Library.
Fee: No charge is associated with this informational workshop hosted by the City of Bristol.

Contra Dance at the Carousel Museum Ballroom!   (8,743 Views)


Contra Dance at the Carousel Museum Ballroom!

March 24 @ 2:00 pm - 5:00 pm

Contra Dance to benefit the New England Carousel Museum – March 24, 2019, 2:00-5:00pm

Enjoy an afternoon of dancing to the music of The New Haven Jammers. $15.00 per person with tours of the Carousel Museum and Carousel rides included. Caller: George Thomson

WHAT IS CONTRA DANCING?
A caller, usually working with a group of live musicians, guides new and experienced dancers alike through a variety of dances. Dance a series of figures, or moves, with each other and with another couple for a short time. Then repeat the same figures with another couple, and so on. The figures are similar to those of old-time square dancing. The figures are combined in different ways for each different dance.

The caller teaches each dance before it is actually done to the music. This gives everyone an idea of what to expect so the movements can be easily executed. The caller leads the dances while they are being done to music, so dancers are able to perform each movement to the music. Once the dancers appear to have mastered a particular dance, the caller may stop calling, leaving the dancers to enjoy the movement with music alone.

People of all ages and lifestyles, including children, are welcome. Contra dances are a place where people from many walks of life come together to dance and socialize.

Create Personal Mandalas with Derek Leka   (6,330 Views)


Create Personal Mandalas with Derek Leka

March 30 @ 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm

The focus will be color. Your personal Mandalas will be generated freestyle with acrylic paint. Color will be your subject matter. You’ll choose a series of colors from a sea of provided color swatches. Using those chosen colors as a guide you’ll intuitively create lines, shapes, and textures inside your mandala guided by nothing more than the color and the inspiration of the moment. Your mind and spirit will be free to express and come forth.
