DAR TOUR MAY 20, 2017

May 20th we will be attending a tour of the DAR Mansion on Rt 23 North in Sussex, NJ at 10 AM. This tour will be followed by Lunch at the Elias Cole Restaurant and a business meeting.  What a hidden treasure! AAUW Sussex County was surprised at the local history in this mansion and the beautiful original furniture. The docents were very knowledgeable about the history of the house and the owners. What a fantastic time we had.

VISIT TO PRUNE RESTAURANT

The book club thought it would be a good idea to visit the restaurant owned by  of one of the authors  of a book we read.  BLOOD, BONES AND BUTTER. BY GABRIELLE HAMILTON. So we trekked into the city to have brunch at Prune in the village and then to a women’s art museum called Pen and Brush. What an exciting adventure!  In November, 2016 this was our adventure.
