    The perfect "start" to summer! A beautiful evening, a world-class performance, and a wonderful community of music-loving friends with whom to share it! Love you, Cathy, for all you do (and all you are!).

    Anyone going to the concert from east Lyme or there-abouts who wants to car pool?

  • Ann F.

    Am dropping out of your count. Last minute happens usually occur here that make me unable to attend...and if they don't today, will go there on my own. Don't want to cheat anyone out of a spot. Weather to be good.

  • Ann F.

    Should be a super show!!

  • jennifer c.

    Cathy - how would I put a friend of mine on the waiting list?

    June 20, 2014

  • Cathy M

    I recommend getting there early, this concert will fill up fast, and it will be difficult to maintain space for as many as we are, also more difficult to find us as the crowds roll in. For Newbies, this is a great time to mix and mingle with other members, (what Meetup is all about), bring your picnicking food, to share, blankets and lawn chairs.

    Thanks for the information Cathy. Looking forward to meeting everyone in the meet up...

  • John

    Anyone have any idea where on the green we should meet for the picnic?

    June 16, 2014

    • Cathy M

      Look for the black and white balloons. We usually meet near the front to the left and left of the sidewalk. That is what we will try for. Depends on the crowds at that hour. The later you get there, the harder it is to maintain a space for a group as large as ours.

  • Marilyn M.

    anyone to car pool from Naugatuck area

    I am going to bring my violin and do the play-in with Music Haven at 7:00 on the green.
