The Little Guild – A Safe Haven
Have you ever visited the Little Guild over in West Cornwall, CT? If you are an animal lover, be careful, as you may just walk away with a new canine or feline friend! Their website has photos and biographies about the pets ready for adoption – they are sweet and heartbreaking at the same time. (http://www.littleguild.org/index.html). All of the abandoned or stray pets of the Northwest Corner come to the Little Guild, where care is given for these poor, helpless animals. These pets deserves the attention and love that this shelter provides them before a new home is found. The Little Guild will be celebrating it’s 50th anniversary in 2010, and although we have always been supportive of their mission, we plan to be more involved with them this upcoming year. Still need a Holiday gift? Perhaps a pet from the Little Guild would be the perfect one!
Bar Mitzvah Celebration!
This evening, 135 Guests – family and friends – will join together to celebrate this special occasion! The tables are set and are surrounding the dance floor, where the live band is getting ready to perform. Our pavilion, the host to over 2 dozen weddings each year, is the perfect spot for any type of special event, not just weddings. We’ve had the opportunity to host many bar and bat mitzvahs, and even one time, a “bark” mitzvah! (We are pet friendly, remember?!) In the warm months, the sides of the pavilion are off, but since the pavilion can be heated, we can host any gathering from 100 to 250 people even in the coldest of months. If you have a large upcoming event where you need plenty of room, consider Interlaken. Contact Brandon Scimeca at firstname.lastname@example.org for more details!
INFINITY Music Hall & Bistro
Here is your chance to see a national act in an intimate local setting! Norfolk, Connecticut is only 20 minutes from the Interlaken, and is now the home of the INFINITY Music Hall & Bistro. This recently renovated theater hosts concerts each weekend by many of the best artists of numerous genres. Even though the theater seats 300 people, it is cozy, charming and authentically antique! There is also a bistro on site that serves both lite fare as well as more creative entrees. How convenient is it to have this type of entertainment just a short ride on a nice country road, in a beautiful small town setting, and avoid all of that big city traffic? It’s definitely another reason to visit Interlaken this season! Find out more about the package we offer with INFINITY and view their event calendar .
