HIKING THE CAMINO DO SANTIAGO WITH THERESA FERSCH: Consider joining us on an adventure on Thursday, June 2nd at 6:30pm as Theresa Fersch shares her adventures hiking the Camino de Santiago.  The entire length of the Camino de Santiago from St. Jean Pied-de-Port, France to Santiago de Compostella, Spain is a 500 mile pilgrimage traveled by pilgrims for over 1000 years. It is said to bring great physical, mental and spiritual growth to all who travel its routes. This grand pilgrimage also provides continuous examples of kindness, generosity, friendship, and love. This incredibly challenging adventure gives pilgrims a chance to experience life as it is meant to be. Theresa will provide a brief overview of what a day on the Camino is like as well as a narrative of her own personal experiences along the way.
Theresa wasn't exactly an adventurer. She enjoyed spending time with her husband Brian and her dog Jersey and 'trying new things' consisted of going to a new restaurant in town. But over the years, her taste for a richer life deepened. The more she broadened her horizon, the hungrier she became for new experiences. She learned that with every new experience, she could better relate to the world she lives in. Soon, 'trying new things' meant pushing herself completely outside of her comfort zone. This is how she found herself in the middle of rural Spain hiking the 500-mile Camino de Santiago.

CONCERT IN THE COURTYARD: Award winning songwriter Curt Bessette and vocalist Jenn Kurtz have performed in hotels and concerts throughout New England for several years.  Their mix of popular music spans several decades in addition to their own original songs.
