Lunch Bunch Plus Tessier’s Changes in Thyme December 3

Lunch Bunch Plus
Friday, December 3
Changes in Thyme then Georgina’s for lunch, Tolland
Members are welcome to join the holiday fun for shopping at Tessier’s Changes in Thyme in Bolton, a shop bursting with country furniture, art décor, pottery, accessories and much more displayed in individual rooms housed in a rustic yet polished setting.  From the website: “Jerrie and Norman completely renovated the barn - beams to floor - and divided the barn into five rooms. Nothing was planned ahead of time.  They worked from Jerrie's newest vision for her shop, Changes of Thyme.  The results are stunning. Each room is artistically composed with unique displays of folk art and primitive reproductions, and one of a kind pieces from juried, award winning artists. Changes of Thyme features the Windsor chairs of Laurence Krause and Pennsylvania Folk accessories. Local artists are also represented.  The inventory is extensive and constantly evolving.  "I don't like things to stay the same for too long.  Our displays and stock change on a very regular basis, sometimes overnight!" Jerrie said with a smile.
On the same property is a large plant and landscape nursery that will be all set for holiday browsing.
The Tessiers close up shop for a week to decorate for Christmas.  Go to to whet your shopping appetite.
Following an hour of shopping, we will drive less than 10minutes to Georgina’s for a wonderful Italian lunch.  “Georgina’s Italian Restaurant has a full bar, ample parking, and friendly service to ensure your dining experience is simple, relaxing and enjoyable.  We have a reputation for preparing delicious high quality cuisine, offering friendly service, and presenting you with new exciting specials regularly.”  Go to to whet your lunch appetite.
We will meet in the clubhouse upper parking lot at 10:00 for the 35-45 minute drive to Bolton, will shop until 11:45 then will drive 10 minutes to Georgina’s for lunch at 12 noon.  Separate checks will be available.  Please bring $3.00 in cash to give to your driver toward fuel.
Please RSVP by Wednesday, December 1 to Anne Fitzgerald at or call 860-673-1216 and leave a detailed message.  Be sure to include your name, email address, phone number, and whether or not you will drive or need a ride.
