The Connecticut 169 Club: Exploring CT
July 11, 2019 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm
Manross Memorial Library, 260 Central Street
Forestville, CT 06010 United States
Author and historian Marty Podskoch returns to Manross with a presentation and book signing of Connecticut 169 Club: Your Passport & Guide to Exploring Connecticut. This travel book encourages people to visit all of the towns and villages of our beautiful and unique state. Short descriptions written by locals highlight each town. Travelers can journal about their experiences and get the book stamped or signed by a resident or business. Adults and children of all ages can join the Club….People who visit all 169 towns will receive the Leatherman Award patch at a luncheon or dinner held at a different town each year. The award is named after the vagabond who lived in caves and traveled a route regularly (approx. every 34 days) from the Connecticut River to the Hudson River during the late 1800s. Please register in advance.
