New in 2014 - Two Off Site Trips

This is the first in a series of posts about innovations planned for Great Escape in 2014 (the dates are Sept. 26 - 28, BTW so put it on your calendar now!)

There will be two offsite trips this year.  The first will be to Quilted Threads in Henniker, one of the largest and best quilt shops in New England.

The second is to The Fells, a historic estate and gardens.  The Fells was the home to 3 generations of the Hay family.  John Milton Hay was the private secretary to Abraham Lincoln, served as ambassador to Great Britain and as secretary of state under presidents William McKinley and Theodore Roosevelt.  At The Fells we can tour the historic house, explore the formal gardens and/or take a nature walk.

  1. These trips are a great way to explore the surrounding area near Camp Wabasso.

  2. The Fells is a cool mix of history and nature. I've been there in early spring, full summer bloom, and fall; there's always something new to discover.
