The Granby Senior Center Civic Engagement Education Team has been hard at work finding different programs to please Lunch for the Mind attendees. We think we have succeeded for our spring initiative. If you are interested in dreams, the history of Granby, armchair travel and the smell of roses, we are pleased to share a “sneak peek” of the following programs.
Wednesday, March 21 at 12:30 p.m.: Dreams and Waking Dreams with Natalie Griffin, founder and owner of Naughty Shaman LLC in Glastonbury. This workshop will examine dream symbols as well as four types of dreams and how to develop your ability to interpret the symbols and events that you see. As Carl Jung said “Dreams are the guiding words of the soul.”

Wednesday, April 18 at 12:30 p.m. : Touring THE STREET (in Granby) with Carol Laun, Archivist at the Salmon Brook Historical Society. With Laun as a guide, we will visit the homes of Delia Church, Two-gun Hotchkiss, Judge William Maltbie and Dr. Ernest Pendleton’s hospital. Meet these residents who lived in town in the late 1880’s as Laun brings them to life in this historical program.
Wednesday, May 16 at 12:30 p.m.: Exploring Scandinavia’s Cities and Countryside with Mallorie Ostrowitz, fine arts photographer. Ostrowitz first takes us to Stockholm, Sweden for a visit to the Royal Palace, Old Town and several museums. Then it’s on to Oslo, Norway and Vigeland Park, a unique sculpture park and finally to the fjords. From Norway, we travel to Copenhagen, Denmark and finish the trip in Greenland, visiting many towns along the way.
Wednesday, June 20 at 12 noon: Walking through the Rose Gardens at Elizabeth Park. Note: This program is a road trip for a private tour of Elizabeth Park at the peak of the rose season. This tour will last about an hour and cover all the major gardens maintained by the conservancy and will include the history of the park. More information will follow for this unique program closer to the June date.
If any or all of these programs pique your interest, mark the dates on your calendars and join us as we leave the doldrums of winter and spring into spring. Please register by calling 860-844-5352.
