Art Groups trip to the Nasher Art Museum in Durham on June 21. One picture is after we spent most of the afternoon looking at art work and were worn out. The picture with the red sculpture is a wooden sculpture. When you leave the museum the “thing to do” is put your admission sticker on the post.
At the museum we were able check out some of the laboratory used to study animals and insects. In the Living Conservatory a colorful variety of butterflies greeted us, as well as turtles and two toed sloth. We ate lunch at the Daily Planet café located in the museum, which had large homemade sandwiches and salads, many people enjoyed the fried green tomato BLT. Everyone enjoyed the beautiful weather and learning interesting tidbits of information!
The Seniors at the Pittsboro Senior Center had a chance to spend time with, and ask questions of, some police officers the other day before lunch.
The Health and Wellness Discussion Group went on their last field trip on Thursday, June 2nd.
