Sunday, March 24, 2019 - Delaware Art Museum - 10:00 AM to 1:00 PM ~
The CCCC will pay a visit to the Delaware Art Museum for an opportunity to
photograph the interior and exterior of the museum. The stately tree-lined
parkway leading to the museum begs for your attention, as does the lovely
residential neighborhood of well-appointed historic homes. Entrance on
Sundays is free, though you may want to make a small donation when
entering or departing. Carpoolers will depart from the Exton Panera (151
East Swedesford Rd, Exton, PA) at 9:30 am. If you drive directly the
Delaware Art Museum the address is 2301 Kentmere Parkway, Wilmington,
DE. We will meet at the entrance of the Art Museum at 10 am. (Please let
Dean Grantham know if you plan to go, and indicate whether or not you’ll
be carpooling.)

CANCELLED : Friday, April 12 -“Behind the Scenes at 30th Street Station”
Saturday, April 20 - Ryess Farm for Aged Equines - 10 am - 2 pm ~ In the
latter half of the 19th century, Anne Waln-Ryerss and her husband John
Ryerss created a refuge for abused horses. The farm itself is beautiful,
including iconic farm buildings and two areas of stables. We can
photograph them alongside these pastures, as well in the stables (no flash
photography in the stables); use of tripods in the stables is under
consideration. Except for the horse pastures (and private homes) you are
welcome to wander the farm, including the stables. Carpoolers will leave
the Panera parking lot in Exton at 9:30 am. If you drive directly the Ryerss
Farm, the address is 1710 Ridge Road, Pottstown, PA. We will meet at the
office (about 100 yards into the property, on the right—there’s a paved
parking lot). Other parking options on the property will be 
provided/described to those who sign up.  (Please let Dean Grantham
know if you plan to go, and indicate whether or not you’ll be carpooling.)
Brandywine Ballet Company ~ Jim Wilson announced that there will be a
second workshop at the Brandywine Ballet Company in West Chester due
to high demand. The first workshop, Sunday, April 7, is sold out. The
second date will be Sunday, June 2. Members are encouraged to sign up
ASAP. Please give your $15 payment to Helen Wagner or send it to the
CCCC mailbox. Once all details have been finalized, Jim will send out an
