2019 Litchfield House Tour and Garden Stroll

Sponsored by: The Litchfield Aid of the Connecticut Junior Republic

A historic Open House Tour on July 12 and 13, 2019 is being planned by The Litchfield Aid of the Connecticut Junior Republic (CJR).  The Aid’s Sixty-Seventh Open House Day will be a one-mile walking tour within the Borough of Litchfield, a National Historic Landmark District.*  The Tour will benefit the CJR, a Litchfield-based non-profit organization that helps children, youth and families in 13 locations across Connecticut.
The rain or shine benefit will begin with a Preview Tour and Party on Friday, July 12, followed by a tour from 10 AM to 5 PM on Saturday, July 13.  The 2019 event will feature nine notable homes, the majority of which are located on Litchfield’s stately North and South Streets.  Representative of Litchfield’s 300-year history, the tour will feature houses that date from a relocated 1685 Saltbox and will take guests through three centuries, ending with a stunning 1954 Marcel Breuer Mid-Century Modern home. The homes on tour, including Georgian, Greek Revival, Colonial, Victorian-Italianate, and of course the prevailing Litchfield Colonial Revival style, have been selected to capture over 300 years of village life and architectural interest in the thriving, vibrant center of Northwestern Connecticut.  Further details about the event will be announced later this year. 
Established in 1911 by a small group of Litchfield women, The Litchfield Aid of CJR has supported the programs and facilities of the Connecticut Junior Republic for more than 100 years and currently has nearly 100 members.  The Aid conducted an annual Litchfield House Tour for 66 years, between the summers of 1934 and 2013.  During 2014 and 2017, the Aid conducted other successful local events. Since its inception, The Litchfield Aid’s activities have netted in excess of $2.5 million to support CJR programs and services.
* The Borough of Litchfield, Connecticut reflects over 300 years of American history throughout the structures comprising the Borough and its Historic District. In 1959, the entire Borough was designated a Historic District by a special act of the Connecticut General Assembly. Later, the Litchfield Historic District and several buildings received even more prestigious designations as National Historic Landmarks, the highest recognition for culturally and historically significant sites in the U.S.
Media releases later this year will provide further details on The Litchfield Aid’s Tercentennial Open House Day.  For promotional opportunities in advance of next year’s Open House event,  please contact Hedy Barton at the number below.
Founded in 1904, the Connecticut Junior Republic (CJR) provides residential and community-based care, treatment, education and family support for vulnerable at-risk, special needs and troubled young people so they may become productive and fulfilled members of their homes, schools and communities.  Today, the organization’s combined programs serve approximately 2,000 boys and girls annually in 13 locations throughout Connecticut.
A private charitable organization, the Connecticut Junior Republic is accredited by the Council on Accreditation (COA) and the New England Association of Schools and Colleges (NEASC).  CJR is supported by gifts from individuals, businesses, foundations and organizations, and through service contracts funded by the Judicial Branch Court Support Services Division (JBCSSD), the Connecticut Department of Children and Families (DCF), the Connecticut Department of Social Services (DSS), and by Connecticut’s public schools.  For further information on CJR’s programs, please contact Hedy Barton, Director of Development and Public Relations (860) 567-9423, extension 252; or by email: hbarton@cjryouth.org.

Treasures from the Yale Film Archive welcomes director Ashish Avikunthak and cinematographer Basab Mullik for a screening of KATHO UPANISHAD. Adapted from the ancient Sanskrit treatise of the same name, this experimental feature from 2011 centers on a metaphysical dialogue in which Yama (Ram Gopal Bajaj) instructs Nachiketa (Suvrat Joshi) about the path to enlightenment. “There’s a languorous quality to his films,” Deepanjana Pal wrote of Avikunthak’s work in the Sunday Guardian. “Themes, ideas, and images wind around creating patterns that are as delicate as smoke signals.” 35mm print from the Yale Film Archive.

October Lunchtime Book Discussion

Sponsored by: Derby Public Library

A bewitching and harrowing tale of mystery and survival, and memory and magic, makes the impossible all too real.  A middle-aged man returns to his childhood home to attend a funeral. Although the house he lived in is long gone, he is drawn to the farm at the end of the road, where, when he was seven, he encountered a most remarkable girl, Lettie Hempstock, and her mother and grandmother. He hasn’t thought of Lettie in decades, and yet as he sits by the pond (a pond that she’d claimed was an ocean) behind the ramshackle old farmhouse where she once lived, the unremembered past comes flooding back. And it is a past too strange, too frightening, too dangerous to have happened to anyone, let alone a small boy.

A groundbreaking work as delicate as a butterfly’s wing and as menacing as a knife in the dark, The Ocean at the End of the Lane is told with a rare understanding of all that makes us human, and shows the power of stories to reveal and shelter us from the darkness inside and out.

Lunchtime Book Discussions are held the last Wednesday of the month and are free and open to the public. Multiple copies of the book will be available at the circulation desk.

Drop-ins are welcome—no registration required.  For further information contact the Reference Desk at 203-736-1482.

Activism in our city’s, our towns, and on our campuses and through social media has ushered in a new sense of awareness in America. Police leaders have had to review and update polices, provide training, and sharpen their awareness around the issues and behaviors driving conversations in their communities. The #MeToo movement raises awareness around the prevalence of sexual harassment and assault in our society; to get women, and men, to raise their hands. In December 2017, Newsweek printed an article authored by Roger Goldman titled “HAS POLICE SEXUAL MISCONDUCT ESCAPED THE #METOO MOVEMENT”? http://www.newsweek.com/metoo-ignore-police-sexual-misconduct-757033. The article’s opening paragraph reads: as victims of sexual assault from the entertainment industry, Silicon Valley, the news business and even the halls of Congress have begun to confront their abusers, at least one group has remained conspicuously silent. And it’s not for lack of numbers.

What is the role of law enforcement executives who have a duty to prevent sexual victimization, to ensure it is not perpetrated by their officers, and to take every step possible to ensure the safety and dignity of everyone in the community?”

This panel discussion, facilitated by NYPD Deputy Commissioner of Equity and Inclusion, Dr. Tracie Keesee, will examine this question through the lens of several female law enforcement officers. Deputy Commissioner Keesee will then facilitate a discussion on some of the key takeaways.

Robert Forster stars as a TV news cameraman in what Vincent Canby described as “a film of tremendous visual impact, a kind of cinematic Guernica, a picture of America in the process of exploding into fragmented bits of hostility, suspicion, fear, and violence.” Featuring the music of Love and the Mothers of Invention, MEDIUM COOL was added to the National Film Registry in 2003. 35mm print from the Yale Film Archive.

September Lunchtime Book Discussion

Sponsored by: Derby Public Library

From the #1 New York Times bestselling author of the smash bestseller Orphan Train, this is a stunning and atmospheric novel of friendship, passion and art, inspired by Andrew Wyeth’s mysterious and iconic painting Christina’s World.

To Christina Olson, the entire world is her family farm in the small coastal town of Cushing, Maine. The only daughter in a family of sons, Christina is tied to her home by health and circumstance, and seems destined for a small life. Instead, she becomes Andrew Wyeth’s first great inspiration, and the subject of one of the best-known paintings of the twentieth century, Christina’s World.

As she did in her beloved bestseller Orphan Train, Christina Baker Kline interweaves fact and fiction to vividly reimagine a real moment in history. A Piece of the World is a powerful story of the flesh-and-blood woman behind the portrait, her complicated relationship to her family and inheritance, and how artist and muse can come together to forge a new and timeless legacy.

Lunchtime Book Discussions are held on the last Wednesday of the month and are free and open to the public. Multiple copies of the book will be available at the circulation desk.

Drop-ins are welcome—no registration required.  For further information contact the Reference Desk at 203-736-1482.

Gold Fish 50th Anniversary Gala

Sponsored by: FISH of Greater New Haven

On September 25, 2018, FISH of Greater New Haven will mark its 50th year with the Gold FISH Gala. We cordially invite you to join us in recognizing and celebrating the individuals and community partners who have helped FISH reach this milestone.

Since 1968, through grassroots community action and leadership, FISH has been responding to the needs of our neighbors who face obstacles accessing traditional soup kitchens or food pantries. FISH responds to every service request either through acceptance into the program or a practical referral to a local pantry. Program innovations such as the implementation of a Vulnerability Index, which uses a defined set of criteria, ensure scarce resources are provided to those most in need: the chronically ill, elderly, disabled and veterans.

In 2017 FISH made 4,428 deliveries to 584 households. This represents 164,637 meals for 1,143 individuals, a 30% increase since 2016. We are currently serving New Haven, West Haven and Hamden. Each monthly delivery includes 2 bags of groceries per household member, assorted shelf-stable items, fresh produce and dairy. An additional bag of assorted frozen meats and fish is provided for each household to share. This averages to about 45 pounds of food per person. This is accomplished with two paid staff members and the support of hundreds of volunteers. Purchases from the Connecticut Food Bank and Massaro Community Farm account for 60% of the food distributed, while 40% is donated from local distributors and community food drives. Grocery packing and deliveries are primarily performed by our partner agencies, which focus on programs for the cognitively impaired. Marrakech, Opportunity House, Kennedy Center, ACORD, Goodwill SNE, Benhaven and Chapel Haven are a few of the many agencies whose clients benefit from engagement in FISH’s program.

All sponsorships and silent auction proceeds from the Gold FISH Gala will directly support our mission to provide groceries to our homebound neighbors. Your support ensures that we will continue to deliver on our core mission and increase our ability to accept new, qualified clients into the program.

Please consider supporting FISH through a sponsorship, silent auction donation and/or attending this event, which will be hosted by Anthony’s Ocean View, 450 Lighthouse Road, in New Haven. With negligible overhead and low operating costs, FISH is a wise steward of your donation. Thank you for your consideration and support.

Taste of the Netherlands

Sponsored by: Connecticut River Museum

On Friday, September 14 from 5:30-8:00 pm, experience the Netherlands as the Connecticut River Museum hosts a night to support The Onrust Project.  Enjoy Dutch culture with samples of traditional food and drinks.  There will also be classic Dutch tavern games, music, and a cannon demonstration – all from the Museum’s beautiful north deck overlooking the Connecticut River. 

The Onrust is a reproduction of the famed Captain Adriaen Block’s 1614 era vessel that was the first European vessel to chart and explore Long Island Sound, parts of Rhode Island, and the Connecticut River.  Block’s accomplishments ushered in great changes that would forever alter life along the Connecticut River, help lead to the fur trade, and the eventual founding of New Netherlands and what would become Hartford. 

Catering by Selene, enjoyed by the Museum for their excellence and creativity in recreating historic recipes, will provide several traditional Dutch foods for people to sample.  This includes stamppot which is the Dutch name for any puree made of vegetables and often served with sausage.  There will also be bitterballen (tiny meatballs) and the delectable stroopwafel. 

In addition, you will see a cannon demonstration with one of the Onrust’s reproduction cannons, and hear a bit of history on the evolution of such weaponry.  Traditional tavern games are available for people to play.

The Standard ticket includes the food and drink tasting, music, games, and cannon demonstration with a cost of $30 for members/$40 for non-members.  The Supporting ticket includes the above as well as a 45-minute cruise aboard the Onrust, and a Dutch drink tasting with Stephen Gencarella, the museum’s folklorist, who will also share some of the history and interesting characteristics of traditional Dutch drinks.  The cost is $50 for members/$60 for non-members (When reserving you will need to select a cruise time of 5:45 PM or 6:45 PM).
Additional beverages are available at a cash bar.  Participants must be 21 years of age or older and show ID.  To buy a ticket, visit the Connecticut River Museum’s website at ctrivermuseum.org or call 860-767-8269.

Funds will go towards supporting the educational mission of The Onrust Project, a nonprofit floating museum that provides the public with a living history experience of 17th century life and maritime exploration.

Spector Furniture and Mattress Gallery, TEAM, Inc., and Valley Shakespeare Festival have joined together again to bring you Spector Spectacular Presents Romeo & Juliet: Choose Your Own Ending!  The furniture showroom, located at 385 Main Street in Ansonia, is a unique venue for the professional actors of the Valley Shakespeare Festival to perform a raucous and rowdy rendition of Shakespeare’s most beloved romance.

What if Romeo had stayed helplessly in love with Rosaline instead of Juliet? What if Mercutio and Tybalt hadn’t died, but had gotten together instead? In this Shakespearean take on the Choose Your Own Ending Adventure style, the audience decides where the action goes!

“This razor-sharp satire enhances our own insights and appreciation for Romeo & Juliet, especially as played by this Shakespeare-savvy cast…” as reviewed by Eric Minton in Shakespeareances, February 28, 2018.

TEAM, Inc. and Valley Shakespeare Festival are local nonprofit organizations which serve the communities of the lower Naugatuck Valley.  TEAM, Inc. develops and operates numerous programs that impact on the economically and disadvantaged populations within the area, and Valley Shakespeare Festival seeks to entertain, inform, educate and enrich the cultural lives of the Valley communities through the magic of free and affordable live theater.

The doors will open to Spector Spectacular at 6:00 pm on Wednesday, September 12th, and Thursday, September 13th, with the show starting around 7:00 pm. The event will also feature a silent auction, a raffle, and a variety of foods from surrounding restaurants, including sushi and stuffed cookies. Beer and wine will be available for purchase.

Tickets are on sale now at $45 per person in advance ($50 at the door) with net proceeds to benefit TEAM, Inc. and Valley Shakespeare Festival. Tickets can be purchased online by visiting www.vsfestival.org. For program updates, follow Spector Spectacular on Facebook.

To Catch a Thief

Sponsored by: Treasures from the Yale Film Archive

Travel to the French Riviera with Grace Kelly and Cary Grant in Alfred Hitchcock’s TO CATCH A THIEF. The romantic thriller won an Academy Award for cinematography, with additional nominations for costume design and art direction. “In his accustomed manner,” wrote critic Bosley Crowther, “Mr. Hitchcock has gone at this job with an omnivorous eye for catchy details and a dandy John Michael Hayes script. Most of his visual surprises are got this time with scenery—with the fantastic, spectacular vistas along the breathtaking Cote d’Azur.” 35mm print from the Yale Film Archive.

The GUYS starring Dan Lauria & Wendie Malick

Sponsored by: Southern Connecticut State University

Actor and SCSU alumnus Dan Lauria, ’70, (“This Is Us,” “The Wonder Years”) joins actress Wendie Malick (“This Is Us,” “Just Shoot Me,” “Hot in Cleveland,” “Frasier”) in THE GUYS, a play by Anne Nelson, about the aftermath of the September 11 attacks. Lauria plays Nick, an FDNY captain who lost most of his men that day. Malick plays Joan, a writer who helps Nick prepare their eulogies. In the process, Nick and Joan discover the possibilities of friendship in each other and their shared love for the unconquerable spirit of the city. As they make their way through the emotional landscape of grief, they draw on humor, tango, the appreciation of craft in all its forms—and the enduring bonds of common humanity.

Paying Homage Soil and Site Environmental Justice Summit

Sponsored by: Artspace New Haven

On September 8, 2018, Artspace will present “Paying Homage: Soil and Site,” a free, full-day interdisciplinary summit to promote dialogue on the interplay of environmentalism, social justice, the arts, and community identity. It will respond to the companion exhibition Ball Snake Ball and the artwork created by participants in Artspace’s 18th annual Summer Apprenticeship Program, a partnership with Vital New Voices, by assembling scholars, activists, educators, and civic leaders working on environmental justice issues to explore the politics of our basic environmental needs and the consequences of historical environmental racism on our local communities, as well as the role of the land itself as a lasting monument to these injustices and others. The day’s agenda will place the arts at the center of these conversations, investigating how creative engagement with the land through the artistic medium of ceramics can offer a new understanding of the links between land and justice. Cosponsored by the Yale University Art Gallery, the summit will take place in the Gallery’s lecture hall.

This event is free but registration is required. Please visit the Artspace Website to register and get full information on speakers, panels, and more.
