2. Saturday, October 26

Back by popular demand is a trip to SOUTHWICK ZOO in Mendon, MA. There are over 100 species in a natural setting at the zoo which includes a 25 acre deer forest and a petting zoo. Since it is near Halloween, the zoo runs a two week special where children in costume receive free admission, but this should not impede our ability to get some really nice photos. We expect the animals to be more lively in the cooler weather. There also may be some fall foliage to enhance our photography.

Admission $22 for seniors (62 and over) or $28 for adults.

Both Trips

YOU MUST be a paid CAP member to attend. Dues are due, so please send your $8 to Jim Dionne at 131 Pembroke Court, Meriden, CT 06450
