Memoir Group: If there is sufficient interest, Y’s Women will start a third Memoir Group in the fall. There are currently two groups, but they have to stay relatively small because of the nature of memoirs. These groups meet monthly in members’ homes. If you have any interest, please contact Cary Peterson at
Carpool & Go! DO NOT MISS THIS OUTING!!! On Saturday, June 24, we have the privilege of a three-hour guided tour of Buckhorn Farm in Pound Ridge, NY to view the magnificent artwork that Sherry and Joel Mallin have collected over many years.  Some 70 enormous outdoor sculptures –including works by Richard Serra, Olafur Eliasson, Chuck Close, and Ursula von Rydingsvard - are displayed throughout the 15-acre park and within a 10,000-square-foot barn filled with paintings, sculptures, and mixed media artwork. Since the park grounds are uneven and the tour is long (9:30-12:30), the Mallins suggest that only those who are good, strong walkers should register for this trip. We’ll meet behind the Wells Fargo Bank at Trader Joe’s parking lot in Westport at 8:00 am, with an 8:15 departure. The guided tour costs at least $250. If 25 or more people register, the cost would be $10 per person. If fewer join us, the cost will rise proportionally (20 people would cost $12.50 per person, for example). Please call Jill Meyer at 226-4310 or email her at to reserve your place, and bring a blank check payable to Jill on the day of the trip. Lunch will be at 1:00 at Ching’s Table in New Canaan, and the gas reimbursement for your driver will be $4 in cash. Please indicate whether you are willing to drive, as drivers are always needed and appreciated.
