Fall Foliage Train & Riverboat
8:00 AM - 4:30 PM

Fall Foliage Train & Boat Cruise
October 20


     Imagine traveling through one of the “last great places on earth” with a front row seat on nature’s annual display!  This 2-1/2 hour nature excursion through the unspoiled Connecticut River Valley is guaranteed to reawaken all of your senses. Relax and soak up the colorful sights while gently rolling through the countryside aboard vintage train coaches. From the open decks of the Becky Thatcher riverboat, you’ll revel in stunning views of the hills bursting with color and reflecting on the river water.

     We’ll depart the Senior Center at 8:00am and board the train in Essex, CT; return to the Senior Center at approximately 4:30pm.  Cost is $35.00 per person and includes boat/train ticket, bagged lunch & snacks, and transportation to/from the senior center.

The 33 1/3 Club

Ever look back and think about how listening to music was an activity all on its own? 

Remember scouring over the artwork on the cover of your new vinyl LP and hoping the lyrics were printed on the inner sleeve.  Now is your chance to spin some vinyl on the turntable in a group setting and immerse yourself in the music.  The 33 1/2 club at the Townsend Public Library will meet and listen to classic LP's. 

Discussion will focus on, but certainly will not be limited to, the time period, the tracks, the album cover art and the artist.  Join in for a listen to this months edition.

Join Dave Schuttler, Bradley Sherwood  and Ward Clark for an evening of music and conversation!

Hall of Presidents Book Club: Martin Van Buren by Ted Widmer
7:30 PM - 8:30 PM

Martin Van Buren by Ted Widmer

 
Join us as we read through the presidents of the United States!
The idea is to not only learn a few things, but to get a deeper understanding the role the presidency has played in this nation's history!
In the midst of a recent discussion, we came to the realization that our knowledge of much of American history was wanting. We decided to undertake a journey through the American presidency from beginning to end starting with George Washington, reading a biography of each president in the order they served. The hope is that this will acquaint us with not only each President, but also the history of the time in which they lived and died.

Discussion will focus on, but certainly will not be limited to, the time period, the tracks, the album cover art and the artist.  Join in for a listen to this months edition.

BOSTON JAZZ VOICES returns to Townsend for the holidays!


The temperature may be dropping and the snow flying but Boston Jazz Voices will be here in Townsend on December 9 at 2 pm with bells on our toes, some new and wonderful holiday arrangements and bearing gifts for all in the form of our brand new holiday CD.  Spare yourself a thankless trip to the mall with the rest of the post-Thanksgiving crowds and give yourself a lovely afternoon with friends and music - what could be better?

This event is sponsored by The Friends of the Townsend Public Library, The Friends of the Townsend Seniors and a grant from the Amanda Dwight Entertainment Fund!

Boston Jazz Voices is an 18 member a cappella group specializing in jazz treatments of songs from the American Songbook.  The first singers came together in April 1985 with a vision of singing the unique and dense harmonies of the great Gene Puerling who arranged and sang with the Hi Los and the Singers Unlimited and whose musical legacy lives on in virtually every jazz group today.  Even familiar tunes take on a sparkling freshness - come hear a Puerling arrangement of Silent Night that will make you wonder where THOSE  chords came from, a supersonic Jingle Bells,  Dona Nobis to an Afro-Cuban beat and many more from their holiday and standard repertoires.

Boston Jazz Voices appeared in Townsend in April and will be so pleased to return to help launch the holiday season with new friends in Townsend.

Ever look back and think about how listening to music was an activity all on its own? 

Remember scouring over the artwork on the cover of your new vinyl LP and hoping the lyrics were printed on the inner sleeve.  Now is your chance to spin some vinyl on the turntable in a group setting and immerse yourself in the music.  The 33 1/2 club at the Townsend Public Library will meet and listen to classic LP's. 

Discussion will focus on, but certainly will not be limited to, the time period, the tracks, the album cover art and the artist.  Join in for a listen to this months edition.

Join Dave Schuttler, Bradley Sherwood  and Ward Clark for an evening of music and conversation!

Hall of Presidents Book Club: William Henry Harrison
7:30 PM - 8:30 PM

William Henry Harrison by Gail Collins

 
Join us as we read through the presidents of the United States!
The idea is to not only learn a few things, but to get a deeper understanding the role the presidency has played in this nation's history!
In the midst of a recent discussion, we came to the realization that our knowledge of much of American history was wanting. We decided to undertake a journey through the American presidency from beginning to end starting with George Washington, reading a biography of each president in the order they served. The hope is that this will acquaint us with not only each President, but also the history of the time in which they lived and died.

Hall of Presidents Book Club: William Henry Harrison
7:30 PM - 8:30 PM

John Tyler by Gary May

 
Join us as we read through the presidents of the United States!
The idea is to not only learn a few things, but to get a deeper understanding the role the presidency has played in this nation's history!
In the midst of a recent discussion, we came to the realization that our knowledge of much of American history was wanting. We decided to undertake a journey through the American presidency from beginning to end starting with George Washington, reading a biography of each president in the order they served. The hope is that this will acquaint us with not only each President, but also the history of the time in which they lived and died.
