CAS Coastal Center gate closing

Via Connecticut Audubon Society Coastal Center at Milford Point Director Frank Gallo: 

Connecticut Audubon Society Gate Closed April 20 
from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. 
Our Annual Return of the Osprey Party 
(Tickets available - see below)

Hi all,

Just a reminder. As usual, we're having our Annual Return of the Osprey Party Special Event at the Coastal Center at Milford Point this Saturday, April 20 at 5:30 p.m. The parking lot will be closed to the general public all day Saturday. Party goers can still park in the lot. Fisherman are asked to be out by 9 a.m. Saturday and may return after 9 p.m. To avoid disappointing anyone, please pass the word along to others.

There are still tickets available for the event. Folks, this is a wonderful event that grows each year. We thank you for your continued support, and we look forward to seeing you here. There is always delicious food and drink, live music, and friends new and old to meet.

Milford's wonderful Bistro Basque Restaurant is providing a delectable Spanish torte and hors d'oeuvres; Villa Gourmet has kindly offered a selection of their amazing cheeses; and Milford's terrific Southport Brewing Company and Restaurant is generously providing a variety of delightful appetizers. I love to cook, so I am making 10 lbs. of salmon with herbs, as well; some of my chef friends have a few surprises planned, also.

Once again, we have some incredible auction items, including original art works from Michael DiGiorgio, Frank Gallo, AJ Hand, Mark Szantyr, Jim Zipp and many others. One of the auction highlights is a beautiful native garnet necklace from Vincent's Jewelers in Milford.

This year we've added some wonderful new gift baskets, and a few of our hand-made Osprey Nest center pieces will be auctioned.

We hope you can join us in welcoming back the osprey, and to enjoy a wonderful evening at the shore. We thank you for your continued support of all we do. We'll see you tomorrow.

Please RSVP, ASAP, to Louise at 203-878-7440 x 502.

Thank you.
