Connecticut Wrappers
7:00 PM - 8:15 PM

A cigar wrapper is the tobacco leaf that you see on the outside of the cigar. Most makers agree that a wrapper has the greatest potential to impact the subtle flavor notes of a great cigar.  Connecticut Shade tobacco is considered one of the best cigar wrapping leaves available. 

Native Americans taught the English how to grow the product and it has been cultivated ever since. Connecticut started growing tobacco in 1640, eventually producing shade-grown tobacco for wrappers in 1901.  Since then, CT farmers have produced some of the finest wrappers in the world.  As Connecticut's top agricultural export, it adds $35 million a year to the state's export revenue.

Shelf Love Book Group
4:00 PM - 4:45 PM

We all love to read, but what happens when the book is over? Who can you share your latest reads with? Does it seem like no one will listen to you talk about all the feels you've been left with? 

We’ll listen!

Shelf Love is a group that meets twice a month to discuss books. Which books? Any ones we want! Share titles, discuss ideas, try out new genres, leave reviews... all in an informal club! Fiction, nonfiction, comics, and manga are all welcome.

Tweens and teens welcome. Registration is not required.
