Carpool and Go! On Thursday, January 18, we’ll enjoy an 11:00 am guided tour of a unique sculpture exhibit entitled Gerberich’s Gadgets: Best of Springs, Sprockets & Pulleys at the Stamford Museum and Nature Center. Local sculptor Steve Gerberich has gathered his most inventive large-scale kinetic sculptures and installations for this very special show. Utilizing old machine parts, kitchen utensils, furniture scraps, medical supplies, toys, and lighting fixtures, he mixes the aesthetics of contemporary sculpture with scientific principles of mechanical motion to create wildly ingenious Rube Goldberg–like pieces. Following the tour, we’ll have lunch at 12:30 pm at Madonia’s Restaurant, 1297 Long Ridge Road. We will meet behind the Wells Fargo Bank in the Trader Joe’s parking lot at 10:00 am for a 10:15 departure.  The cost of the guided museum tour is $10 per person. Please call Jill Meyer at 226-4310 or e-mail her at to reserve your place. Mail a $10 check payable to Jill to 40 Owenoke Park, Westport, CT 06880.
