Around the Calendar in Connecticut

Among the things at my Aunt Mary's were these slides that originally came from Great-Aunt Margaret, my grandfather's sister. The show of the seasons in Connecticut starts on New Year's and ends just after Christmas. There were two slide trays of pictures along with a written presentation which she gave to groups. I had to cut some of the slides and the show is still a bit long. Many of the pictures were taken in Colchester, at or near the Bunyan family home. Other locations in Connecticut are represented as well.

The woman snapping the photo of the lady slippers is Margaret. The boy in the tree cutting slide is my dad. The woman making doughnuts and biscuits is my great-grandmother. The man at the head of the Thanksgiving table is my grandfather. There are more family members at the Christmas table.
