A special invitation from Friends' President, Dianne Grenier...

Have you ever wondered what it's like "behind the scenes" at the Bushnell in Hartford? If so, here's an invitation for all of the Andover PL Friends from the group's president, Dianne Grenier:

Bushnell Backstage Tour for Friends of the Library

The Friends of the Andover Library officials are organizing an “exclusive” backstage tour of the Bushnell Center for the Performing Arts in Hartford for members of the Friends of the Library.

The tour will take you backstage of both the old Mortensen Hall and the new Belding Auditorium.
See the Projection Booth, Green Room, Electrician Room with the “stars signature wall” and the Horace Bushnell Suite. Learn about the historic one-of-a-kind ceiling mural, the Dale Chihuly “Ode to Joy” and much more.

Your Tour Guide will be Dianne Grenier, president of the Friends group and a 10 year veteran of the volunteer corps of Bushnell ushers and tour guides.

A considerable amount of walking is required and the tour will take approximately 1½ - 2 hours.

There is no charge for the tour, but participation is limited so reservations are required.
The Friends of the Library are delighted to be able to offer this opportunity to its members.

The Friends' Bushnell tour date is set for Saturday, August 26 at 2:00pm.

To reserve your spot on the tour call Dianne Grenier at 742-3033 or e-mail at deardianne@comcast.net
