New Hampshire Winery Adventure (Gardiner/MSAD 11)

Many of you enjoy our annual winery tour. This spring, let us take you a little farther afield as we sample some of the finest wines along the southern New Hampshire Wine Trail. Experience the hospitality of some of the granite state’s best known wine venues during this day of touring, tasting, and shopping. We can’t leave Maine without stopping at the CellarDoor’s Thompson Point location. The urban sister to Lincolville’s popular winery is designed to spoil guests with elegance and city flair. We’ll sample a variety of wines that are both distinctly Maine-made and uniquely American. A charcuterie and cheese board, souvenir glasses and time for the gift shop round out our visit. In New Hampshire, we’ll first visit the Labelle Winery in Amherst where winemaker Amy LaBelle began making small batches of wine in 2005. Production has dramatically increased, now offering over 30 styles of award winning, world class wines all produced in their state of the art facility surrounded by lush vineyards. We’ll sample some of the favorites followed by plenty of time to visit the gift shop featuring all 34 varieties for sale along with the Winemakers’s Kitchen culinary line. In Brookline, we’ll visit Averill Farm Winery where the Waite family prides itself in keeping an unassuming, friendly, and relaxing atmosphere at the winery that lends itself to personal exploration and an intimate tasting. The goal is to create the best wines and provide a rich and friendly atmosphere for family, friends, and wine-lovers alike. We’ll try four varieties, enjoy snacks, and go home with a souvenir glass and wine shop purchases! Our tour lunch will be served at the Holy Grail Restaurant in Epping where the old St. Joseph’s Church has been reborn into one of the Seacoast’s premier restaurants. The owner’s Irish roots are reflected in the food and ambience of this very unique pub.

Thoroughly Modern Millie (Gardiner/MSAD 11)

We’re off to the theater - the North Shore Music Theater in Beverly Massachusetts, that is! This award winning theater in the round is kicking off the 2020 season with Thoroughly Modern Millie - and we have some of the best seats in the house for a matinee performance. “Filled with flappers, tappers, and a roaring good time, THOROUGHLY MODERN MILLIE is set in 1922 New York, when all the modern girls are sporting bobbed hair, heightened hemlines and entering the work force. Small-town newcomer Millie jumps headlong into a makeover and a dizzy plan to marry rich - until she falls for a penniless charmer. Her adventures are crowded with a flurry of jazz-age ladies, a runaway heiress, a nefarious landlady, and more. This Tony Award-winning Best Musical is a mix of madcap mistaken identity, high-spirited show tunes, and tap-happy dance numbers that will have more kick than bootleg gin. (nsmt.org). We’ll plan a stop for lunch (on your own) in Portsmouth’s busy Market Square where there are a variety of choices. Registration fee includes transportation and show ticket.

Deadline to register is May 1st. No refunds will be issued after this date.
