FREE Parish Kohanim Persentation

We don't normally include information on the CAP blog about events sponsored by other organizations. However, there is a FREE photography lecture coming up next Monday evening that we highly recommend to our members that will help expand your creativity and teach you a few new techniques.

On Monday evening, November 16th from 7 to 9 p.m. Parish Kohanim, a Canon explorer of Light, will take a journey through his diverse and striking body of work. He will share his passion about the art of photography and inspire you with a focus on finding the beauty that surrounds us. If you want to expand your personal horizons this is a do not miss presentation.

The lecture will be held at the Cromwell Crowne Plaza, 100 Berlin Road, Cromwell, CT  06416 just off I 91.  Click for a map showing the location.

For more details see the descriptions here or here. You must register in advance which is free here or here.

CAP Field Trip to Stockbridge, MA

CAP is planning a field trip to the quaint town that inspired Norman Rockwell's classic Christmas paintings. The trip will include the Norman Rockwell Museum. You will be able to tour historic houses, properties, and inns such as the Campbell House, the Rectory, Naumkeag, Tanglewood, and Windermere Manor. (This is a self guided tour where we can proceed at our own pace.) Also there will be Caroling, a Luminary Walk (possibly), and festive decorations in town. The Red Lion Inn with Roaring Fireplace, Harp and Piano Entertainment, and Gift Shop is also there.


WHEN : Saturday December 5th, 2015
WHERE : Main Street Stockbridge Massachusetts
COST : One flat rate of $20.00 allows access to all buildings. For those who choose not tour the Inns, Houses, and Manors there is no cost, but you are on your own during that time.
