    Thank you Cathy for organizing this event. I enjoyed my first visit to the Wadsworth Atheneum, viewing the collection with members, the wine, French film, it was classic!

    The Toulouse-Lautrec Project was amazing - although extremely crowded on the venue of the marble staircase. Anyone who missed it has another chance tonight at 7 PM - hopefully less crowded! It consisted of dance (including can can) art and drama. Very creative!

    Hi there, I looked, but couldn't find anyone. See you at the next event, I hope!

    Sorry to those who did not connect with us, these venues are crowded and can be difficult. The spred out layout made it even more difficult, hoping they change it back to as before. I got there after 6 and planted myself near that side entrance to go downstairs around 6:15-6:30. Hope to see you all soon.

    These are always fun events, interesting themes, great minnie play about Toulouse. I must say I did not care for the layout of events, too spread out and the spot for the theater event was too tight and crowded, needed a bigger space, not sure why the couldn't have used the movie theater space. Great to see everyone and sorry to miss some, big crowds can make it tough to connect.

    If anyone wants to car pool from Hamden, North Haven or Wallingford area, RT 15 or 91, give me a call on my cell[masked] to make arrangements.

    I will be late in getting to the event, probably a bit after 6, will be near the side entrance area to the hall where you go down to the theater, lets regroup there about that time...
