Knights of Columbus Hall Jewett City, Connecticut
This was a very ambitious painting attempt. The first one went out the truck window! But, I do love the subject even though I had to change parking spots several times. Growing up this place was “hopping”. I remember how excited I would be wearing my Girl Scout uniform to Sunday Mass at St. Mary’s to come here after with Mom & Billy (wearing his Boy Scout Best) for the Knights of Columbus Breakfasts. As a Girl Scout, I remember picnics here, too. Now falling down, with Condo’s built around it reaching as far back to the old cemetery, I realize how my past is gone. Recently, all the overgrown briars have been cut down. Perhaps, like most of St. Mary’s it is up for sale for new life again?
