OCTOBER PROGRAM: Joseph Zajac (Linear Trails) and Dwight Needles (Meriden Land Trust) Present:

MERIDEN’S LINEAR TRAIL

At the Meriden Public Library Griffin Room

Saturday, October 30th at 2:00 pm

The meeting is open to the public.

AT THE HOMESTEAD:

The Andrews Homestead was one of the featured buildings at the September Boys and Girls Club’s House Tour Fund Raiser. We did not prepare a special exhibit for the occasion or for our traditional October Month Long Open House as the building is in too poor a shape to accommodate visitors. An attempted break-in to the building resulted in damage to the door and the overhang above it. Since we are leasing the building from the city, we are waiting for the city to repair the   damage (as well as previously accumulated damages to the building such as window repair, roof repair, fence repair not to mention chimney pointing and peeling of paint). We hope to be able to open the building to the public in May.
