NYBG Bus Trip Thursday June 7, 2012

Hello NESBA Members,

Once again, we are planning a trip to the beautiful New York Botanical Gardens in the Bronx, NY. In addition to the fantastic grounds, there is a special exhibit going on called "Monet's Garden".
"Monet's Garden, on view in the Conservatory glasshouse and outdoor courtyards, will pay stunning tribute to the artist and his inspiration--flowers. Explore the rich legacy of his idyllic gardens and their lasting impact on the art world. Rarely exhibited Monet paintings never before seen in New York will be on display in the complementary Library exhibition that also includes Monet's original palette, digital versions of his sketchbooks, and more"....see

IF YOU LIVE NEAR THE NYBG and/or don't need the bus transportation, please plan to meet us there! We'll include you in the $20 group rate. Let me know if you'd like to join us! We have a lot of CT and NY members now, and we'd love to see you there!

RSVP as soon as possible to Nancy Savage. We must get at least 25 BUS participants signed up by May 29 (checks to me by then, too) in order for the trip to happen. This is due to the cost of the bus. So email me, then put ONE check in the mail ASAP made out to "NESBA" for $75. ($55 pp for bus) ($20 pp for admission to Gardens only). Mail check to Nancy Savage.

If we cancel, due to low enrollment, I will return checks to you. We will not cancel due to weather----we'll go rain or shine.
Hope you can go! Looking forward to it!
