Trip to the New Britain Museum of American Art

Here's your chance to see a local gem and some of its collection in the company of our members.  We will have a docent-led tour from 11:30 to 12:30, followed by lunch from their Café on the Park.  You may purchase whatever appeals to you from the menu which features gourmet sandwiches and wraps, savory soups, salads, homemade desserts, and an array of beverages including local favorite Avery's brand soda.  Make sure you register so that we can have a count.
