The Friends of Fort Trumbull to Welcome Museum Quest Maven;

Education/Lectures

Fort Trumbull State Park-Conference Center, 90 Walbach St., New London, CT , 06320

On May 31, 2018, at 7 p.m., the Friends of Fort Trumbull State Park will welcome Stephen Wood- a man of curiosity, courage and caring. Mr. Wood is the creator of a project originally called Museum Quest and now called CTMQ, More Nutmeg than You Can Handle.

Each day on his way to work, he would pass a sign for the Industrial Museum in New Britain. Since he had never visited this site, and no one he knew had done so, he began to think about the many museums that must be available in Connecticut. He was also trying to find activities to engage his son, who suffered from a rare syndrome, Smith Magenis, which results in cognitive and behavioral challenges. His idea was simple- to visit every museum in Connecticut, thereby providing opportunities for family outings and historic learning.

After much research, he compiled a list of approximately 550 museums in Connecticut. Since 2006- when his plan started to develop- to 2018, he has made a significant dent in the list, but it is still a work in progress, as he visits both museums and other Connecticut places of interest. During his quest, he has noted unusual museums such as the Trash Museum, the Haddam Shad Museum, and the Special Joys Toy and Doll Museum in Coventry. One of the smallest was the Waterbury Button Museum. To learn more about his adventures, visit his web-site, http://www.ctmq.org along with CTMQ on Facebook.

Mr. Wood, who has been a West Hartford resident since 1991, is a research analyst in the insurance and financial services industry. His talent for writing is evident in his popular blog.

The public is welcome to attend at the Fort Trumbull Conference Center this free presentation, the second in our 2018 series- Musings on Museums. New members are always welcome. Come early as seating is limited. Bring a friend, stay for refreshments, and get to know us. More information about the Fort and the Friends of Fort Trumbull is available at www.fortfriends.org and on Facebook at Friends of Fort Trumbull State Park.

Until Help Arrives, May 31, Groton;

Education/Lectures

City of Groton Municipal Building, 295 Meridian Street, Groton, CT , 06340

According to a recent National Academies of Science study, trauma is the leading cause of death for Americans under age 46. Life-threatening injuries require immediate action to prevent an injured person from dying. Those nearest to someone with life threatening injuries are best positioned to provide first care until help arrives.
To help citizens prepare for an emergency, the City of Groton Fire Department and the Ledge Light Health District Medical Reserve Corps are offering the Until Help Arrives training. At the end of the free FEMA three-hour course, participants will be able to: Use simple and effective skills to save lives; Communicate with 9-1-1 operators effectively; Act to protect the injured from further harm; Position the injured; Stop life-threatening bleeding; and Provide emotional support. Registration is required: email: cityofgroton.recdesk.com or call 860-446-4128.
