The Roxbury Public Library Board of Trustees and the Friends of the Roxbury Library are pleased to present a tour of six private kitchens in Roxbury and Woodbury. Proceeds from this fundraising tour will benefit the improvement of the Roxbury Public Library’s Community Studio. The Connecticut Community Foundation is the tour sponsor. Area businesses have generously donated select raffle items.
Views of spectacular Roxbury landscapes are matched by the promise of cozy family times and convivial entertaining as each kitchen reflects its owners’ personalities and interests. From a custom-built beehive oven perfect for making pizza, or a soaring grand kitchen-living area, to a simple farm house built in the 1770s, and from elegant renovated kitchens to purpose-built contemporaries, the “heart of the house” will inspire and entice visitors.
The self-guided tour will begin at the Library with morning coffee and refreshments, where ticket holders will pick up their programs and directions to the homes. Between 11am and 3:30 pm six kitchens, ranging in style from an antique colonial to a recently renovated contemporary, will be open for tours. The tour concludes at the Library with a champagne reception and raffle from 3:30 until 4:30pm.
Champagne Reception and Raffle: Saturday, November 11, 3:30 – 4:30 pm
