In Follies the time is 1971, and theatrical impresario Dimitri Weissmann hosts a reunion of ex-Follies performers in his crumbling theatre, setting the stage for a parade of brilliant pastiche numbers, including "Losing My Mind," "I'm Still Here," and "Broadway Baby." Amid the reminiscing, two middle-aged couples confront some unpleasant truths about their past and present, and come face to face with the future.

White Memorial Conservation Center Tree Bark Identification Workshop with WMCC Research Director James Fischer


80 Whitehall Rd, Litchfield, CT Phone: 860-567-0857.

Many trees in our area lose their leaves every autumn, which means that one of the most useful ways people distinguish between tree species is no longer available for many months of the year. There are other ways to identify trees and one is always present; that is by the bark. Learn how to identify trees by their bark and how tree bark changes over the lifespan of the tree. Dress for the weather and wear comfortable shoes. 1:00 P.M., A. B. Ceder Classroom, FREE... Donations will be accepted to help defray the Conservation Center's programming expenses.
