ST. ARMAND’S CIRCLE TOUR & PROGRESSIVE LUNCH – “STROLL, LEARN & TASTE!” TUESDAY, DECEMBER 11, 2018
This LLI trip is a great opportunity to not only learn the history of St. Armand’s Circle, one of the loveliest areas in Sarasota (and an island), but also to enjoy some holiday decorations and get into the holiday spirit. Maybe make it a gift to yourself and/or someone special in your life!
Stroll & Learn: A docent-led walking tour of St. Armand’s Circle in Sarasota will feature how integral John Ringling and the Ringling Brothers Circus was in establishing this popular area. The Circle is ringed with medallions of personalities making this venue a virtual Circus Hall of Fame. In addition, there are other famous statues within the Circle tour that the docents will discuss.
And Taste: The trip includes four different restaurants for a progressive lunch – appetizers/salad, entrees/accompaniments at two different places, and dessert. Each restaurant has handicapped access. Tour guidelines request that you “come hungry” as there will be lots to eat and you will be full at the end of the tasting part of the tour!
LLI has scheduled three tours of approximately three hours each and we will be divided into three different groups with different starting times – 11:00 a.m., 12:00 noon, and 1:00 p.m. Each group will have time to explore on your own, either before or after the tour. There is about a mile of walking on sidewalks so wear comfortable shoes and casual attire. There are benches along the way plus seating in the restaurants for the tasting part of the tour.
Cold bottled water will be provided on the return trip to the campus but there will not be any snacks – we think you won’t even miss them!
Meet in FSW, Building O Cafeteria from 9:00-9:25 am The bus leaves FSW Charlotte Campus promptly at 9:30 a.m. and returns by 6:00 p.m.
Registration Price: Members: $104.00 Non-members: $119.00 Patron: $94.00. Fees include the docent tour, the progressive lunch, coach transportation and all tips.

"The Revolutionists" by Lauren Gunderson, Matinee Performance at the Gulfshore Playhouse Naples' Premiere Professional Theatre Wednesday, January 30, 2018 NOTE: LLI must have 30 paid registrations received in the LLI office by September 3, 2018.
Liberte, egalite...sororite. In the chaos of the French Revolution, anything can happen...especially laughter. Against the backdrop of France's Reign of Terror, former Queen Marie Antoinette, assassin Charlotte Corday, playwright Olympe de Gouges, and spy Marianne Angelle form an unlikely alliance. Written by the most popular playwright in America, this explosive comedy puts a modern twist on history as these women fight for equality and freedom and leave an indelible mark on history in their wake. A woman's perspective, smart, funny and fits so perfectly in the moment we now live in.
This matinee performance includes a pre-performance discussion with one of Naples' respected historians.
Fees include comfortable coach transportation, tickets for performance, pre-performance discussion, gratuities and a fabulous lunch at Naples' Seasons 52. Choose one of three main courses!
The trip will leave FSW Charlotte campus at 10:30 A.M. and return by 6:45 P.M. Complimentary water and snacks will be served on the return trip.
