Historical Society Wreath Sale and Benefit to be Held at Forum Club and Toto Winery and Railroad Museum

November 22, 2013 at 8:36 AM

The Madison Historical Society’s Annual Holiday Wreath Sale and Benefit will be held on Saturday, December 7th between 1:00 and 4:00 PM at the Madison Forum Club, the Villa Rose Wine School and the new Madison Central Railroad – all located on the property of Carmine Toto, Jr., just east of the Madison YMCA main parking lot off of Kings Rd.  The Y has graciously agreed to allow event parking at that east end of the lot.  The cost, which covers all events, will be $10 per person.  There will be no charge for children 12 and under.

“This year’s sale will feature a wine tasting at the Villa Rose Wine School and the chance to see a working O-gauge model train layout, which is being constructed in Toto’s vintage 1928 Railroad Express baggage car by members of the West Jersey High Railers club, a division of the Tri-state Railway Historical Society.  There will be as many as 7 or 8 model trains running simultaneously all afternoon over more than 750 feet of track. 

 We are encouraging parents to bring their children to see the train exhibit and to visit the 1928 Erie Lackawanna coach car located next to the train exhibit.  The car was converted by the railroad to ‘Training Safety Car’ in 1945 and is currently being restored by Toto. Note: all children must be accompanied by an adult when entering the winery.

Members of the Forum Club will also describe the history of the Club and give demonstrations of the popular Italian game of bocce on the Toto’s bocce court.  And weather permitting, children of all ages will be given a chance to play a little bocce,” stated society vice president and program chairperson Cathie Coultas

President Linda Connors added that “a large number of beautiful wreaths and table and mantle decorations will be displayed at the Forum Club and will be offered for sale.  All are made through the efforts of members of the Historical Society, the Madison Garden Club, and Madison High School art students.”

 Light refreshments will be served by members of the Society and entertainment will be provided from 2:00 to 3:00 PM by the “Four Old Parts” barbershop quartet.  All proceeds from the event and sale will go to support Society programs and activities.”

My Epic Beauty Fails

One day as I was looking around a high-end cosmetics store for a new lipstick, a “beauty expert” approached me and said that I was so stunning I should forget the lipstick, and get a lip plumper instead. At first I wondered why I needed a lip plumper if I was already so stunning. But then I thought, “Now here is someone wearing a badge that says, ‘beauty expert,’ so ...
