An Evening at the Art Center and the Theatre

Twenty-one Rotarians and spouses attended a fellowship event that started at the Art Center in Southbridge where we saw a special exhibit commemorating the 200-year history of the town of Southbridge.  Joining us for the evening was Ron Trembley, president of the Southbridge Rotary Club, as we enjoyed hors d’oeuvres and libations.  The curator of the exhibit, Steve Brady, highlighted an 1855 town map, a quilt, rug, paintings, old photos and records, and a time capsule which will be buried next spring in Dresser Park across the street from the Art Center.

Following dessert, we walked to the Gateway Theatre where we saw the very funny play, “Breaking Legs”.  It was an educational and fun evening with good friends.
