The Wepawaug-CT Valley-West Rock Chapter of Hadassah will present a program on “The Catskills of CT” by Dr. Lawrence Wartel on September 10, 2019, at 2 pm at Woodbridge Library, 10 Newton Road, Woodbridge. Dr. Wartel’s grandparents, Rose and Aaron Greenberg, owned Stucco Cottages Resort in Moodus for over 50 years. Dr. Wartel himself grew up in Moodus and worked at his family’s resort when it was part of a flourishing Connecticut industry. There were more than 2 dozen similar resorts in the area in the 1940s and 1950s, and summer visitors flocked there from around the region. Come hear more about this special slice of Connecticut history. And perhaps share your own memories? Please RSVP to email@example.com.
