Tour Original Manchester Country Club

Description: RARE OPPORTUNITY TO TOUR
THE ORIGINAL MANCHESTER COUNTRY CLUB CLUBHOUSE
Manchester, CT A sought after opportunity to tour the original Manchester Country Club Clubhouse, currently the home of Danita and Robert Sulick, is now being offered as a part of efforts to raise funds for the Manchester Sculpture Project.
The Sulicks have agreed to open their home at 417 South Main Street for a tour on Sunday, October 15 from 2pm to 5pm to benefit the Manchester Sculpture Project.
A limited number of tickets will be sold at a cost of $40 each. The Tour will showcase the home’s unique architecture, interior and gardens, and include memorabilia relating to the history of the property. Refreshments, music and a fabulous silent auction will be a part of the day.
The Sculpture Project is a public art project that celebrates notable Manchester residents by commissioning life size bronze sculptures for placement in locations around Manchester. The first statue is of Joe McCluskey (1911-2002) – Olympic medalist, national record-holder, and four time Manchester Road Race winner. Considered Manchester’s greatest athlete. Joe will be located on the East Coast Greenway, across from Highland Park Market, along the Road Race route and walking trail.
Michael Keropian, the artist who will create the bronze sculptures, will be present at the Open House to display a model of the McCluskey sculpture and speak with attendees.

The Sculpture Project is one third of the way to its goal of $65,000 for the first of the three sculptures. “ We are so gratified by the special opportunity that Bob and Danita offered us to help raise funds for this special project.” notes committee member Lynn Sottile. “ The committee is working hard to reach its goal of having the McCluskey sculpture in place by November of 2018.”
Tickets for the Open House and Tour may be purchased at The Manchester Historical Society, 175 Pine St., Manchester.
A free shuttle bus will transport attendees from the Forest Street Parking Lot in Downtown Manchester to the house and return them to the Forest Street Parking Lot at the conclusion of their tour.
