      Event Description:
      Studio 33 Art & Frame Gallery is pleased to present the Three Friends Exhibit September 9, 2022 – November 5, 2022, featuring the maritime paintings of local artists Robert J. Hauschild 1941-2012, Phil Cutting 1934-2017, and John McGuire. We welcome all visitors to the CT Maritime Heritage Festival on Sat. Sep 9, 22 through the weekend, to our maritime themed exhibit. Robert J. Hauschild’s father was a commercial artist, as a child he was given full access to paint, paper, and brushes, his favorite watercolor and acrylic paintings would include what he knew-his early playground along a river with ferries, tugs, and lighthouses. Hallmarks of his paintings are hard edges, dramatic shadows and stark contrasts between dark and light falling upon the surface of the canvas. His work has been described as surreal and mystical in style and subject. His watercolor paintings have been reproduced on four New London Main Street posters. Phil Cutting, known as “Capt. Phil” professionally, was a radio personality and marine reporter. He loved anything to do with Long Island Sound, in his retirement he volunteered at Mystic Seaport and became an avid watercolor and pastel artist. John McGuire paints watercolor landscapes and seascapes based out of the New London – Waterford, CT area, Studio 33 carries his beautiful greeting cards featuring his watercolors of local scenes as well!

      Event Name:
      H.M.S. Pinafore

      Event Description:
      On October 15th and October 16th the Connecticut Gilbert & Sullivan Society will be performing a fully staged production of H.M.S. Pinafore.

      One of the most well-known and beloved of the Gilbert & Sullivan operettas, H.M.S. Pinafore is filled with comic characters, a fun story line and some great and memorable songs. Like other Gilbert and Sullivan works, Pinafore pokes fun at British society and the social mores of the day.

      The H.M.S. Pinafore is under the command of Captain Corcoran. On board with him is Josephine, his beautiful young daughter. Among the ship’s crew members is Ralph Rackstraw, foremast hand. Ralph was smitten with Josephine from the moment he first saw her (that is frequently the case in these shows). But he knows he dare not tell her how he feels. She is his captain’s daughter and her position in British society much higher than his. He knows that she would never allow herself to marry a common sailor. Unbeknownst to Ralph, Josephine is secretly smitten with him too, but she dare not say so for he is but a common sailor. And besides, her father has promised her hand in marriage to Sir Joseph Porter, K.C.B, First Lord of the Admiralty and she has promised her father that she will honor his wishes.

      But that will soon change as Little Buttercup reveals to all a secret she has kept hidden regarding a mistake that she made, in her baby farming days, many years ago

      Event Name:
      Groton Beautification Daffodil Sale

      Event Description:
      The Groton Beautification Committee will hold its annual Daffodil Sale on October 15, 2022, from 9:30-12:30 at the Groton Senior Center. Residents will be able to access the daffodils from the drive through area. This will be a cash only sale. Residents may order ahead of time by calling Committee Member Nancy Codeanne at: 860-536-9253 to place orders ahead of the event if they choose. Purchasers may buy one dozen bulbs for $15 dollars and the profits will go towards projects the Beautification Committee is presently working on.
      “The committee is continuing to focus on the gateway areas of the town and recently installed signage at the intersections of Route 117 with new color theme of blue background with white lettering indicating clearer direction arrows to Town Hall, Town Hall Annex, Police Station and the theme of “Explore More” which is a common welcoming introductory term for people to help navigate and acclimate people into Groton to what Groton has to offer.”
      Another sign was recently installed on Route 117 to enhance that gateway along one of the main arteries into the center of town near the library. People entering from the I-95 ramp will pass this sign as well which has a similar coloring for unity and the theme of “Groton, Explore More.”
      Projects planned or completed: flower gardens, shrubs, trees, artwork, murals, and sculptures. Many projects such as the Groton Public Library sculpture, Town Hall, Annex, Sutton Park, Police Station, top of Fort Hill Parklet garden plantings, Mystic John Kelly memorial plantings, Long Hill/Poquonnock Rd/Avery Memorial area plantings, Par Four entryway plantings have already added a unified and upgraded appearance to the town. Similar projects on the docket or in development – the daffodil bulb sale being the committee’s yearly fundraiser.
      The daffodil sale is the committee’s yearly fundraiser to continue the Beautification’s mission of enhancing Groton’s landscape through plantings, artwork to improve residential, business, and overall community pride. The yellow color of the daffodil enhances any community landscape but is especially welcoming in the northern states such as Groton, Connecticut after a long winter.
      “We hope this event will continue the community’s excitement to enhance the town’s landscape and living environment for our generations and future generations.”

      Make a Pillow Case Dress

      Event Description:
      Pillowcase dresses were originally designed to be kind of a “one size fits all” type dress for youth. The way the dresses are made (loose-fitting and gathered around the neckline). The dress will “grow” with the child, eventually becoming more of a top than a dress.

      Participants will learn how to make a basic pattern and use a sewing machine to make a child’s dress. Your instructor Maritza will guide you through all the sewing steps in making this adorable little dress.

      We ask students be comfortable using a sewing machine and be 16+

      All materials will be provided.

      The cost of this class has been greatly discounted thanks to the generosity of the Community Foundation of Eastern Connecticut and their dedication to equitable education in Eastern Connecticut.

      Class Fee is non-refundable. Please plan accordingly
