“Beautiful Brimming Blossoms at Our House” Luncheon at the General Mansfield House
The Middlesex County Historical Society invites members, friends, and the general public to gather together for a relaxing luncheon under the 120 year old ginkgo tree that is at the center of the back yard of the Society’s headquarters, the General Mansfield House. The gardens, which have recently been expanded, will be at their best in this oasis of tranquility in downtown Middletown. Along with the sounds of the Spear Park fountain, it is a perfect place to beat the July heat and get away from the stresses of the day. Guests are encouraged to wear their summer hats.
The garden luncheon features a summer salad plate, with fruit and cookies, iced tea and lemonade and will be held on Wednesday, July 24, rain or shine. Two seatings are offered at 11:30 and 1:00. Reservations are $20 per person and are required; group bookings are welcome. Takeout orders will be accepted. For additional information or to make reservations, call the Middlesex County Historical Society, 151 Main Street, Middletown, CT 06457 at 860-346-0746. Past luncheons have been well attended, so early reservations are encouraged. Proceeds will benefit the renovation of the two century-old Mansfield House. Connecticut Underwriters, Inc. is a sponsor of this event.
